“Camellia Flower 1”

I love the first week of December in Miami. The weather is cool and a multitude of artists, art dealers, collectors and art enthusiasts from all over the world converge here for modern and contemporary art. The most well-known art show is Art Basel/Miami Beach. This show alone features 267 galleries exhibiting the work of approximately 4000 artists. There are numerous other art fairs scattered throughout the city—more than 20– in addition to Art Basel. Tonight I attended the opening of Scope, which is housed in a temporary pavilion, on the sands of Miami Beach, off historic Ocean Drive. Scope has 120 international exhibitors from 22 countries. A couple of my favorite pieces were the bright Camellia Flower 1 & 2, by Joung Joa Kim. When I got up close I could see that the yellow pollen of the flowers contained tiny mother-of-pearl birds, stars and flowers. Below are a few other favorites.
