“This acrylic on layered canvas and LED work by Fernando Cuétara, ‘Aurea’, was my favorite piece from Art Basel. Love the mixed media using canvas and light.
“I also like his use of negative space and clean approach. Simple yet mesmerizing.”
“I absolutely fell in love with this piece by Edite Grinberga called “Room with Yellow II.” The detail and sharpness of the work was absolutely fantastic and I love her use of light. I walked by this painting way too much at Art Miami!
“The piece below was another favorite by Siri Gindesgaard. I love her use of color and the intimate nature of her work. I loved it so much, I had to have it for myself!”
“This refractive reflective Anish Kapoor mirror from Art Basel showed what a craftsman he was. I’m also a big fan of Cloud Gate in Chicago and his incredible whirlpool installations.”

“My favorite piece at Art Basel was this mesmerizing kinetic installation by Paula Rivas.”
“I really loved this piece by Yaacov Agam; it was essentially three pieces in one. The scale was amazing and you really needed to immerse yourself in the piece to see how impressive it was. The reflective surface, the geometric shapes, the ombre color effect it had; I felt like it could translate to so many spaces and designs that the potential was endless.”
“This figurative collage work by Jay Kelly was my favorite piece. The creative use of negative space and mixed media is beautiful and feminine, the juxtaposition of multiple textures is well thought out and sophisticated.”
