I started out the day at Seven, a smaller venue, but there was still plenty to see. They had a wall of large photograph cut outs by Richard Galpin, but I liked the one I saw at Pulse better, so hold off for the picture. They also had quite a few pen drawings, this one by Dawn Clements was my favorite. It has a strong composition, and all the details and objects draw you into the surface of the drawing, making you want to travel through the collection of objects.
Thankfully, I took all these pictures so I still remember some of what I saw. This tree with it's feather roots by Jorge Mayet is a little reminiscent of a couple of my swan performance drawings no?
When I made it back to civilization Sunday afternoon, I finally felt able to process new visual information. And decided to check out Ink on Miami Beach. Sadly I arrived at 3:00 just as the show was closing, and so, instead spent the day on the sand, beneath the sun, listening to the ocean. All in all, it was a fantastic Art Basel. It was almost more of an art Marathon than my 24 paintings in 24 hours the week before. Perhaps next year I should start a training regimen a few months ahead of time, start out with 3 museums a week and slowly build my endurance from there.
