documented a few years ago, Gomez’s paintings captured the often anonymous figures of domestic and manual laborers that make sterile scenes of homes and gardens possible. As Ardis noted, these are often the “invisible” people of our culture. The art fair known as Miami Project has very quickly become one of the better fairs at the top part of the art fair food chain, and within Miami Project, an inside-the-fair art fair titled “art on paper Miami” has also received good marks from the collectors that I talked to. In fact, since I work on paper myself, some of my collectors noted that I should have my dealers try the fair for my own work in the future. A recommendation doesn’t get higher than that! At Miami Project, LA was represented by Dunden & Ray. By Sunday evening, when most of the fairs ended, the glamorous aura of ABMB week ends as gallerists begin the sweaty dance of re-packaging the art for the long and expensive trip back home.
