This past weekend my husband and I went to the 2012 Miami International Art Fair aboard the SeaFair. The boat itself was pretty spectacular. I loved the way they converted it into a beautiful gallery space. The unconventional venue was the perfect location for the all the amazing work on display.

My favorite pieces were the ones by Venezuelan optical and kinetic artist Jesus Soto. His work included a couple of sculptures and paintings that incorporated kinetic elements. I loved the simplicity of the pieces and the way they drew you in. The detail in the artwork was simply perfect. I really enjoy pieces that feel effortless, but when you look closely the refinement of the detail is what makes them special. I relate to this type of artwork since it’s what I attempt to do with my own work.
