Collectors Susan and Michael Hort's Picks from Art Basel, LISTE, and Volta 2016
Work by Armin Boehm at Meyer Riegger

If there’s a major art fair afoot, you can be sure that the collectors and philanthropists Susan and Michael Hort are on the scene, scouring the booths for more works by their favorite emerging artists to add to their ever-growingholdings. Here, the pair tells us about the most exciting works they encountered at the 2016 Basel fairs, including Volta, LISTE, and Art Basel itself.

 

VOLTA

 

NAOMI SAFRAN-HON
Slag Gallery

NAOMI SAFRAN-HON


She uses cement, paint, and photography to make historical-looking objects.

 

FLORIAN HEINKE
Charlie Smith

FLORIAN HEINKE


He uses black acrylic on raw canvas to make sensual and often political paintings.

 

MICHAEL JOHN KELLY
Galerie Kornfeld

MICHAEL JOHN KELLY


He’s known for using photography, collage, and paint to make his beautiful paintings. 

 

LISTE

 

BRENDAN FOWLER
Mathew Gallery

BRENDAN FOWLER


Using fabric and thread, he puts together these sinister-looking objects.

 

ANKE WEYER
Office Baroque

ANKE WEYER


Anke makes these beautiful, abstract, strong paintings. We had her up last year but think she is getting stronger with this new body of work.

 

JEAN MARIE APPRIOU
Jan Kaps

JEAN MARIE APPRIOU


He uses different materials and does the foundry work himself to make these weird surrealistic sculptures.

 

NATHAN ZEIDMAN
High Art

NATHAN ZEIDMAN


His salon-style installation was mind blowing. We particularly loved his use of color and everyday images.

 

ART BASEL

 

SECUNDINO HERNANDEZ
Victoria Miro

SECUNDINO HERNANDEZ


An amazing painting. It looks spontaneous but in reality it took 4 canvases of planning to make this spontaneous looking amazing painting.

 

BRIAN BELOTT
Gavin Brown's Enterprise 

BRIAN BELOTT


For this piece, Brian took all the leftover calculator sculptures he often uses in his paintings to make a great installation.

 

JON PESTONI
David Kordansky Gallery

JON PESTONI


Jon is a master abstract painter who gets better all the time. We love his choice of colors, but despite his different styles the work is easy to identify as his.

 

ARMIN BOEHM
Meyer Riegger

ARMIN BOEHM


This painting was inspired by his time spent in California. We have many of his paintings in different styles, but this one has more motion than our others.
