ABOVE: CARLOS BETANCOURT WITH APPROPRIATIONS FROM EL RIO: AS TIME GOES BY IN MIAMI.
Wooden oars, glass bottles filled with freshwater pearls, a sculpted fish, a white skull, and a silver chalice hang from the ceiling among hundreds of unique objects. This complex installation is suspended above tables, as the focal point of Miami’s new restaurant, Seasalt and Pepper. Last week during Art Basel, Puerto Rican artist Carlos Betancourt unveiled his latest work at the restaurant’s opening party.
