ARTmonday: What I Saw At Art Basel Miami

I went down to Florida last week for some sun, a family visit, and a couple of jaunts into Miami for Art Basel Miami 2013. It was the first time I’d been, and I didn’t see a ton, but I did enjoy what I did take in at the convention center. The works there (as opposed to many of the other shows that go on in surrounding areas), are incredibly high end. Walking through the windowless, cement floored, vast space was liking walking through a museum, without the good architecture.

Josef Albers, Jeff Koons, Fernando Botero, Adolph Gottlieb, Alexander Calder, Claus Oldenburg, Picasso, Robert Indiana—I saw works by all. Plus the ones below. I labeled where I could. (Thanks Artsy for the extra assistance.) If you can identify any that I left out, please leave a comment. Thanks!

ARTmonday: Polly Apfelbaum

I learned of Polly Apfelbaum when I saw her work hanging in interior designer Amanda Nisbet‘s daughter’s pink bedroom. I promptly Googled (thankfully the mag supplied the credit) and was rewarded. I LOVE Polly Apfelbaum.  Her work reminds me a bit of another favorite of mine, Beatriz Milhazes. Turns out that fine art publisher Durham Press creates prints of both women’s work. Seeing how MOMA owns Apfelbaum’s work, a print is about as close as I’ll get to ever owning one.
