Recap :: SCOPE Miami

Though largely hit or miss, SCOPE Miami did present some stand outs, with Joshua Liner Gallery rising to the top of the pack.  Showcasing artists like David Kassan, James Roper, Tomokazu Matsuyama, and Tony Curanaj, the gallery continues to take bold steps to move beyond the street/outsider art circles (Cleon Peterson, Dave Kinsey, and Travis Louie were also on display) it has already gained a reputation in. Making its art fair debut, Anonymous Gallery struck big with Dave Ellis’ musical installation – a beat-making anamatronic trash heap snatched up by none other than Charles Saatchi. The New York Gallery also had success with the best paintings by Maya Hayuk and Rostarr we’ve ever seen. Judith Supine’s solo installation at the New Image Art served as a reminder of why the artist has so successfully transcended the street environment where he first garnered attention. Krampf Gallery again focused on a a selection of Asia artists, including the porcelain works of  Ma Jun, while AJ Fosik stole the show at Jonathan LeVine with his most ambitious and imposing beast sculpture to date.  The gallery was also invited by the fair to show large scale paintings by Jeff Soto, Calma, and Doze Green at a special SCOPE exhibit.
