On the sidewalk just outside the Miami Projects art fair, I could immediately recognize a colorful painting by Julie Oppermann, as it pulsed waves of color through the window from the Mark Moore booth. Standing in front of the large work, my mind worked to establish comprehension of an all over pattern.
