9 Boys and 1 Girl, Farley Aguilar, 2012.
And these are some powerful images. In 9 Boys and 1 Girl, nine figures in costumes that can either be bunny rabbit ears or horns of the devil surround a single crouching female figure clearly in a bunny suit (look for the cotton tail). Her face is almost all open mouth. Meanwhile, in the faces of the boys you can see dead eyes, crazy eyes, drunk eyes, among other expressions all drawn in simple lines and circles.

The exhibit is entitled "Americana," and, Spinello says, "It's about how America is obsessed with violence.... I feel the show is very relevant, very now. The work is touching on a particular time, pop culture and the media and violence."

Please, Do Not Wake, Farley Aguilar, 2012.
Spinello is also in his own moment. Having had more than several locations in both the Miami Design District and the Wynwood Art District since 2005, this new space has a feeling of permanence about it -- for now.

"This type of space gives me room to mature and grow," he says, "and just being able to have enough space for storage is something that I haven't had for awhile."

Opening Reception of "Americana" at Spinello Projects, 2930 NW Seventh Ave., Miami. Saturday, September 8, 7 p.m. to midnight. Exhibition runs through Saturday, October 6, 2012. Visit spinelloprojects.com.
