ArtBlend Gallery in Fort Lauderdale was representing my Asia Series paintings. Here are a few of them:
I took artistic license in creating "artful calligraphy" for these paintings based on my experience in studying Chinese calligraphy painting, but allowing myself to make up the letter forms. In an effort to then attach meaning to each painting, I wrote a Haiku style poem on the back for how the painting reminded me of of my having grown up in Taipei, Taiwan and Seoul, Korea as a child.
Here are some of my favorite pieces by other artists from the Miami Art Basel Wynwood Contemporary shows:
blah, blah, blah - Mel Bochner, Quint Contemporary Art
Ross Bonfanti (creepy, but cool!)
Judy Pfaff, Accola Griefen Gallery (encaustic wax on ephemera from India)
Ensayo Sobre Guero Tropical, Omar Chacon, Fouladi Projects Gallery
Alejo Santa Maria
Festival, Suh Jeong Min, Jankossen Contemporary (rolled and sliced Korean paper)
Richard Hart, Baang & Burne Gallery
Me with Charlie of Baang & Burne Gallery, NY who graciously gave me tickets to the CONTEXT Contemporary Art Show. In front of her artist, Richart Hart's, powerful works.
And, last but not least, my fellow artist Tonia Wasko and I were fascinated by the running videos with sound encapsulated in glass jars by artist David Zimmer at the Robischon Gallery booth. Here's a link to a video I took of one of the jars YouTube of Live Tornado Capsule. You can see more of David Zimmer's artwork at the Robischon Gallery website HERE.
Hope you enjoyed this glimpse into Miami's Art Basel 2013! HAPPY ARTING! Tristina
