The most impressive showing at the 2014 Miami Art Basel… Peter Marino collection on exhibit at the Bass Museum!
The exhibition showcases the chemistry between Marino’s personal collection of contemporary art, iconic architectural work and his series of cast-bronze boxes. Fitting with the architect’s style of creating tailored installations, the exhibition comprises a selection of commissioned work by artists Gregor Hildebrandt, Guy Limone, Farhad Moshiri, Jean-Michel Othoniel and Erwin Wurm among others.
Marino’s exquisite and intricately detailed cast-bronze boxes that seemed to weigh a ton, his black eel skin walls and how he re-framed paintings together by different artists in one frame were not to be over-looked at the night’s event. Peter indeed does have a superb eye!
But the most stunning part of Peter Marino’s collection appeared on a set of nails! Yes, the nails of his daughter Isabel who spent three days having her nails transformed into miniature paintings of her father’s collection from Damien Hearst to Warhol.
