Untitled Art (Miami Beach) 2021, not only has an excellent selection of artists who, in turn, have an outstanding selection of artists, the venue itself is always bright, without the lights so often required to illuminate pieces at art fairs and shows. It is spacious too which is comforting in the current climate.
Unfortunately some art translates less to photos even in such a well lit environment than others. Reader by Sylvia Maier is one of several pieces shown by the artist at the Malin Gallery (New York) booth. In the previous piece an artist was compared to Hieronymous Bosch. Maier calls to mind Renaissance artists and even Rembrandt. This isn't referring to some attempt to copy or even necessarily stylistic similarities but intent. These are portraits not just of people but of their context, of their time. You need to see them in person
