UPCOMING EXHIBITION: De-Xtinction

@ FAENA Forum – Miami Art Week

December 6th – 11th, 2017

FAENA FORUM – 3300-3398 Collins Ave, Miami Beach, FL, USA

We are looking forward to an extraordinary exhibition during this year’s Miami Art Week at FAENA Forum:

„DeXtinction“ brings the archaic and primordial into our postmodern present. The exhibit reminds us that our contemporary interest in aesthetic spectacle originates in the spectacular creations of the natural world, evolving over millions and billions of years.

DeXtinction highlights the beauty and magnificence of the Earth’s natural treasures, valuing them as miraculous art forms in themselves.

As part of this exciting and dynamic event during Art Basel Miami, together with Avant Mining, we will be featuring a world class selection of fossils, gemstones and minerals.

We invite you to feel the fragility and transience of mankind, by marvelling at the remains of Tyrannosaurus rex or viewing some of the largest crystal minerals in the world!

OUR ARTISTS

DREHER CARVINGS

The Dreher family legacy was born in a small town with a long history in Idar-Oberstein, Germany. Taking part of a 600-year gemstone carving tradition, the House of Dreher has earned a reputation for creating some of the most famous and collectable animal carvings in the world.

SCARPELLI PIETRA DURA

Inside century old Medici workshops, a creative symbiosis between artists, craftsmen, stone seekers, and color assemblers emerged. Precisely cut and color-matched individual stones were arranged to create a perfect composition of unique and complex mosaics, referred to as a “painting in stone” (pittura di pietra).

ANDREAS ROTH

Andreas Roth is a master engraver of gemstones. He acquired his carving skills in his fatherís workshop in Idar-Oberstein, Germany. He specializes in the manufacturing of larger and smaller cameos, as well as crafting modern, antique and classic gems, portrait engravings, intaglios and objects crafted in gemstones. His success has allowed him to participate in special exhibitions hosted in Japan, Israel, and Munich, just to name a few.

VICTOR TUZLUKOV

Victor earned his Graduate’s Degree from the Moscow branch of GIA, specialized in Gemology. In 2010 he founded the Russian Faceters Guild, as well as the international faceting competition, ‚The Russian Open‘. Today, he is engaged in faceting top-quality gemstones and creating exclusive designs. His “Philosophical Stone” collection opened a new dimension in gemstone cutting, using symbols in a new pattern of facets. His work has been hosted in exhibitions featured world-wide.

PERRY BRENT DAVIS

Always driven creatively by his love of nature, Davis works to conceive and craft one-of-a-kind pieces that represent a substantial fusion of Eastern and Western sculptural styles. Each stone is unique, the pattern and colors revealed by carefully and purposefully removing the rough surface, layer by layer. As he brings the character of the stone itself to play, the spirit of surrealism, expressionism, and minimalism are also brought to light. Perry has been a long time contributor to our gallery and never ceases to amaze with new and old creations.

HENDRIK HACKL

Renowned artist and sculptor, Hendrik Hackl is fascinated by prehistoric life. His works are creative depictions of moments from evolution, reawakening the past uniquely in the middle of our pulsating present. With his skillful eye and almost 30 years of experience, he combines materials like aluminum, iron, slate and wood with ancient objects to create truly handcrafted contemporary design works. The result is a distinctive glimpse into the beginning of evolution, often presented in a humorous way. This contrast is Hackl’s trademark and key to his success. Hendrik’s ever evolving works have been a continuous feature in our gallery, embodying the true nature of Fine Natural Design.

BRENDA HOUSTON

Brenda Houston has established herself as a growing force in the world of art and design, collaborating with names such as Issey Miyake, Giorgio Armani, Donna Karan, and David Yurman. Her growing roster of clients includes A-list interior design firms, celebrities, royal family members, and luxury hoteliers throughout the world. She is proud to produce all of her collections within the United States and we are pleased to present her beautiful designs within our gallery.

KONSTANTIN SOYFER

„I like to work with stained glass, but I like to bring fossils there too. I pioneered in using ammonites with stained glass, a very careful process with many challenges, but the results are amazing.“ – Konstantin Soyfer

Realizing the challenges of incorporating ammonites into stained glass, Konstantin overcame the obstacles to create something entirely unique and magical.

GRANADA COLLECTION

The Granada Collection is a carefully selected, exclusive assemblage of the most valuable natural treasures and unique creations of fine natural design. Our collection provides the appropriate framework for worldwide one-of-a-kind objects that span the gap between geological relevance and contemporary design. From the areas of gemstones, fossils, sculpture work, jewelry and interior décor, these rarities stand out amongst the rest.

GRANADA GARDEN

In our garden we feature local sculpture artists from Tucson to present their craft in larger than life format. The artists each share a unique take on the facets and building blocks of nature. With formations“ from the desert in Arizona, fractal patterns welded into tetrahedrons, and are-visit of paleontological phenomena, these artists help to create an inviting space for our guests.
