Bringing Leonardo Meoni’s work to Miami is indicative of AMANITA’s greater pursuit of introducing young Italian artists to a wider global audience.
AMANITA made the decision to bring two works by Leonardo Meoni given the intimacy of their friendship. Leo was the first artist to work out of AMANITA’s residency in Bassano in Teverina and gave them their first exhibition in New York. His work reflects AMANITA’s commitment to early career artists and to their shared interest in artist practices that both challenge and engage an audience. Formally, the works are both evocative and provocative, while materially, they are sensual and deeply contemplative.

As art professionals in their 40s, ARTLINE collection reflects their maturing journey in their personal lives and the changing currency of the art world of their time.
ARTLINE’s private collection is built by Rosa Suehyun and Ji Park, who are both deeply rooted in the nature of art. Rosa was trained in fine arts at an early age, studied art history and cultural studies in school, and currently works as an art consultant. Ji started playing piano at 3 years old and eventually became a professional pianist. As the two friends merged their private collections of 20 years and started their art consulting firm together, their collection has grown in size and maturity. Rosa’s first art purchase was at the age of 23 while working at an art gallery, an etching by Donald Judd, and Ji’s first purchase was an Andy Warhol silkscreen, purchased from Rosa with her entire savings.
ARTLINE sends out special thanks to Edward S. Kwak MD who has been a great supporter of ARTLINE.

COTE Miami was founded in Miami's Design District in February 2021, emulating its flagship location in New York City. The restaurant provides a unique and convivial atmosphere infusing fine dining service, world-class ingredients, and a show-stopping beverage program. After earning a place in the inaugural 2022 MICHELIN Guide Miami, Orlando and Tampa, the COTE brand was recognized as one of the only two restaurants in the United States with MICHELIN stars in multiple cities. For owner and CEO, Simon Kim, COTE Miami has always been about enjoying oneself and having fun over a memorable meal. While Simon has spent his entire professional career in the hospitality field, Simon’s sister Sue has done the same investing her talents in the world of art. It was Sue who brought these artworks to Simon’s attention and together, brother and sister developed a look and feel for the artworks that are on continued display in the restaurant - and it’s their collaboration that brings you here today for Art After Dark.

Henry’s collection ranges from a giant green finger, inspired by the Statue of Liberty to a turquoise hand-shaped chair.
Over the years, SoHo-based art collector Henry Buhl has assembled a vast collection of photographs and sculptures devoted to one subject: Hands. His inspiration for the unique collection stems from his purchase of Alfred Stieglitz’s photograph of Georgia O’Keeffe’s hands, titled “Hands and Thimble,” in 1993. His favorite art piece is a white marble sculpture by Lorenzo Quinn, which features two hands in a circle approaching each other, symbolizing “giving and taking.” This art piece meaningfully conveys his purpose of providing jobs and trade training through the Association of Community Employment Programs for the Homeless (ACE), a non-profit organization in New York City that he founded 30 years ago.

Matthew‘s collecting began during childhood; it started from collecting Oakley sunglasses and soccer jerseys and has evolved to sneakers and art.
Matthew is a founder of Del Toro, a luxury footwear brand specializing in shoes and accessories made in his native Italy. He now has two new luxury brands, Blu Scarpa and Concetto Limone. He is also a founder of The Office, a gallery in Miami which showcases emerging artists such as Thrush Holmes, Adam Rabinowitz, and Eduardo Sarabia. Through Del Toro, Matthew has built a strong relationship with the art world, working on various collaborations with artists such as Daniel Arsham, Rob Pruitt, Katherine Bernhardt, and Richard Woods. Matthew’s favorite genre of art is arte povera. The central theme of his collection reflects his roots: Italy meets USA. When asked what inspires him to continue collecting art, he said, “…I would say just being moved by aesthetics and beautiful creations.”

“Nothing else besides art can consistently expand my world and give me the greatest joy.”
“I collect what I like” is the mantra that has led Miyoung’s art collection down many paths, from emerging NYC artists, mid-career female abstract artists, to figurative African-American painters and more. Miyoung is especially passionate about Korean and Korean Diaspora artists such as Lee Bul and Doho Suh, two Korean “OG’s” who are pioneers in their own right. Miyoung feels a special bond with these artists as they are all similar in age, and she appreciates their courage to embark on the paths they chose in a time when the Korean art scene was highly unpopular. Her first art purchase was made soon after graduate school in Eastern Europe, with her American Express Travelers Checks.

“What I love about art is that I have no motivation. When I am buying art, it just feels natural and instinctual. It does not even feel transactional.”
Reilly’s introduction to art was through artist Friedrich Kunath. Reilly was hooked on his work from the very beginning and through Friedrich, he discovered the Tim Van Laere Gallery. Tim has since become Reilly’s mentor in the world of art. He is grateful for his relationship with Tim and Friedrich as he obtains different perspectives; an artist’s and a gallery’s. Reilly is a fan of many of Tim’s artists, including Rinus Van de Velde, Friedrich Kunath, Bram Demunter, Tal R, Kati Heck, and Ben Sledsens. Reilly spends more time in museums than he does in galleries, purely out of passion.
