Today is the final day of Palm Beach Modern + Contemporary presented by Art Miami. If you haven’t made it to the fair yet, now is your last chance. We are featuring eight incredible photographers in our booth (140) and today we will highlight two of them.
Kate Breakey (B. 1957 Adelaide, South Australia) is best known for her large-scale photographic work with birds and flowers that she painstakingly brings back to life with colored pencils. These pieces can be seen in two monographs, Small Deaths (2001) and Flowers/Birds (2003). In 2014, Breakey turned her focus to the land, and the small details of everyday life: a hummingbird resting on a tree limb, a wilting tulip, figs on a counter, the moon setting over the mountain, trees swaying in the evening dusk. Produced as Orotones (prints made on glass and backed with 23k gold leaf) Breakey creates small objects that command our attention, using an early technique to comment on the beauty, fragility and simplicity of her daily surroundings.
Daniel Beltrá’s Iceland and Greenland work is also on view. Daniel is an aerial and conservation photographer and has been documenting the effects of global warming on our landscape for over two decades.
