David's Pick


A note to our readers: While some galleries have begun to open to the public via appointment, many more are retaining online viewing rooms, events, and activities through the month of June, as we’ve noted below.

There’s an extremely composed balance to Anastasia Samoylova’s Reflection on Biscayne Bay, layers of imagery colliding in a perfect disharmony that is at once arresting and sublime. The confluence of disparate objects seems to have arrived at one serendipitous moment. There’s a soft sunset backdrop, the artist’s still form in the middle ground, and an in-focus shrub obscuring most of the detail, save one: a solitary lizard, slightly fuzzed due to foiling the camera’s focus, ascends the glass that blankets the scene and adds a sense of vertical stacking to the 2D image. Disorienting in the best way, there’s a Rauschenberg-like sense of collage to the work, heightened by the fact that it was captured in a single moment via camera.
