#TBT : Op, text, and fanciful figuration at Art Basel, Miami.
Thinking back on a couple more of my favorite shots from this year’s Miami Basel. •
First is: “Painting with Verticals 2” (oil on canvas, 2006) by Bridget Riley, at Elvira González’s booth. I liked turning the corner to find this large canvas, its almost pulsating Op Art geometries glowing in warm hues above the washy concrete floor of the convention center’s barest layer. •
Swipe to see a nook of Simon Lee’s booth, with a Christopher Wool and a George Condo in pithy conversation with one another. •
Which of the three would you want to take home?
"Synesthesia" (40x40x4in.) Another Bassnectar inspired creation 🌌🎶👽📡 I'm very excited to announce that I will be bringing this piece down to Atlanta in a couple weeks for Bassnectar's new years eve celebration! MASSIVE thank you to the team at @bass_network for allowing me to bring a piece of myself down to share with my basshead family! This will be a center piece of the Gift Altar installation in "The Haven", so come by and check it out!
This is an incredibly special piece that I designed after last year's NYE celebration in Birmingham. I won't give away what it means to me because I want you guys to see it for yourself and create your own experience or idea of what it represents to you. Bassnectar has had a profound impact on my life and especially my inner creative. Without it I'm almost certain I would not be an artist today. Each experience pulls something from deep inside and brings me closer to my true self. I know I'm not alone here there are thousands who share these same experiences and use them to better themselves and their connections with those around them. The love surrounding this community is unreal and I can't wait to share another special night with all of you! Thank you so much! ✌ 🎶Bassnectar & G Jones - Chromatek🎶

I composed this pattern starting with a 9 pointed star, which can smoothly connect in a circular ring with 18 nine pointed stars. As it just so happens, 9 x 2 = 18, so it should come as no surprise that eighteen of these stars connect harmoniously. The large, central star also has 18 points, due to it being created from lines extending from the ring of eighteen 9 pointed stars. Finally, this central combination of 9s and 18s can be smoothly arranged in a traditional hexagonal tiling configuration. This is due to 6 (hex) being a multiple of 18, and 9 also being a multiple of 18. To further demonstrate this correlation, I emphasized the hexagrams connecting each 9/18 tile. Also worth noting - if you blur your eyes or focus on the entirety of the pattern, you will notice large hexagrams running throughout the macro structure of this pattern. Complicated, yet intuitively simple!! ☆☆☆
