It’s tough for me not to love Art Basel. There are few places that I would rather be than the epicenter of contemporary art. The fact that it goes down in Miami is simply the gooey icing on a rather divine cake. This year did not disappoint. It’s easier to ask me to pick my favorite child (Malcolm, it’s you) than to pick my favorite artwork but I will give it a try.
Improved Pointless Payne’s Gray by Jan Maarten Vaskail could hang in many a client’s home. I would take it in mine too.
Split Rocker is pure Jeff Koons.
The Cumbrian Blue(s) series by Paul Scott stopped me in my tracks for its unexpected reinterpretation of a classic piece.
Last but certainly not least, who doesn’t imagine twerking down the Mississippi with this cheery crew? Thanks Shawn Huckins for making me laugh.
