Painting by Robert Janitz at NADA Miami Beach (courtesy of Clearing Gallery)
In a two part post, Tatiana Berg photo blogs paintings on display at the Miami Art Fairs: Art Basel in post one and NADA and Untitled in post two.
Berg notes that the photos are her "personal highlights and completely subjective, biased favorites. As much as there is to complain about art fairs they remain a pretty efficient way to see a ton of work all at once, before you fill up and fall over and die from exhaustion... Getting to walk around and stumble upon a piece by an artist you love is fun in a celebrity-sighting kind of way, and occasionally you get grabbed by something you've never seen before."

Mattera notes that "There’s a lot of big at the fairs, but the small paintings I saw really held their own. I expect to see smaller work at the smaller venues, but it's always a surprise to see them at [Art Basel Miami Beach]."
