My Highlights from Art Basel 2014

What I love about Art Basel is the dialogue between the ground floor and the first floor, between the so called modern floor and the contemporary. I usually spend a lot of time walking the ground floor, discovering delicate works on paper by Hans Bellmer or Egon Schiele, among the more grandiose presentations by blue-chip galleries. I selected works spanning the 1930s to today that are a constant inspiration for what I do and that look at the human figure in its many variations.

My Selection:

Otto Dix, Portrait of the Singer Frau Stüntzner, 1932, at Galerie St. Etienne

Jay DeFeoLotus Eater No. 1, 1974, at Mitchell-Innes & Nash
