Sublime Alloy…Metal Sculptures of Art Basel Miami Beach

The juggernaut event that is Art Basel Miami Beach had no shortage of incredible artwork installations in virtually every medium.  We tend to gravitate towards the metallic artwork Variety.  Take for example this aluminum and stainless steel sculpture, titled “The Garden”, by Peter Rogiers – we can only imagine a cluster of these in an outdoor setting.

And this sculpture, entitled “Bearlike Construction” by Gimhongsok, displays the amazing intricacy possible with bronze sculpture.  The illusion of being a beanbag-like structure is positively intriguing.

Finally, a whirlwind of metal – “Twin Vortexes” by Alice Aycock, crafted of painted aluminum – this piece feels as though it is truly in motion.
