Art Basel Miami Beach
29 November – 3 December 2022
Miami Beach Convention Center
For the 2022 edition of Art Basel in Miami, Peter Freeman, Inc. is pleased to present a selection of bold, captivating works that challenge everyday notions of scale and perspective.
Thomas Schütte’s sculptures anchor the booth at both entry points. On one end sits the artist’s fantastical Nixe, a larger-than-life bronze mermaid measuring almost 10 feet tall; at the other, the playful Deprinotes watercolors serve as a fitting backdrop for his Großer Frauenkopf. Another large-scale work by Jan Dibbets underscores questions of representation and reality in photography by manipulating a close-up detail of a car hood into a painterly monochromatic image. In Michael Heizer’s F.A.X, the geometric, black-and-white painting reflects the artist’s exploration of positive and negative space within his iconic desert earthworks. By contrast, an industrial design illustration of railway machinery has been blown up and transferred onto a bright green background in Matt Mullican’s diptych Locomotive. The impressive size of these works only accentuates the strikingly reduced scale of Charles LeDray’s series of hats that line the booth’s walls. Their placement nine feet above the ground, far above any other works on view, adds another level of irony to their already humorous spirit.
Other highlights include works by gallery artists Catherine Murphy, Mel Bochner, and Fernanda Gomes. Several historic works, including a series of photographs by Bernd and Hilla Becher, a large Alfred Leslie painting from 1956, and a welded steel sculpture by Mark di Suvero, are also on view.
