Brooklyn-based artist, Ruby Sky Stiler's conscious constant has been the female figure. But where others might choose more stereotypical representations of the female form, Stiler's work has a firmness and weight that, while celebrating the form, also cements it as a symbol of authority. The artist's firm solo show in Miami, hosted by Locust Projects, is a "sculptural engagement with the female form and its manifestation in the varied dialects of twentieth century abstraction."

For an example of brise soleil, take a look at Miami's skyline, the tropical, modernist architecture is practically native to the Magic City.More »
