With a booth exhibiting a wide array of artworks by contemporary masters such as Damien Hirst, emblematic blue-chip pieces by renowned names, and selected works by some of the gallery’s artists, HG Contemporary was the booth to visit at Scope Miami Beach.
Curated by the owner of the gallery, Philippe Hoerle-Guggenheim, the curation connected pivotal artists from the past 50 years with their rising counterparts. The gallery unveiled never before seen paintings by Richard Hambleton including iconic works from the 80’s, his most important years. Andy Warhol’s Gun, a quintessential silkscreen that defines Warhol’s obsession with death after being shot by Valerie Solanas, depicting the same .32 handgun Solanas shot him with; was the centerpiece of the booth. Featured also were two paintings by German artist Karen Shahverdyan, discovered by Hoerle-Guggenheim, whose eerie portraits of beach scenes present to the viewer a sentimentalism that is visionary in the foreground of Miami.
