About the Collection

Sadie Benning (b. 1973) works in video, painting, drawing, sculpture, photography and sound. Benning’s resin paintings, presented here, are intensely hand-worked and carefully assembled compositions of wood and aqua-resin coated in layers of primer and casein-based paint. The works’ combination of texture, material, and approach can be read as drawing, painting, and sculpture, breaking down the historical barriers between these three modes of making.

Gerasimos Floratos (b. 1986) grew up quite literally at the center of the city in Times Square where he continues to keep a studio. The vibrant dynamism of this milieu is evident in Floratos’s paintings and sculptures, where he draws from the constant yet ever-changing nature of his surroundings to create pictorial abstractions populated by what the artist calls “characters.” Through these amorphous figures—formed from tropes of the city’s denizens—Floratos examines the psycho-spatial architecture of a globalized world from a highly localized perspective.

Keltie Ferris (b. 1977) is known for her mostly large-scale canvases covered with layers of spray paint and hand-painted geometric fields.  Characterized by a continuously expanding investigation into painting, her practice considers a multiplanar site for constructed light and shifting space.  These three new paintings created specifically for Art Basel Hong Kong feature raised polygonal shapes, formed from a mixture of oil paint and marble dust. Applied with a palette knife and custom stencils, these impasto sections expand the parameters of painting by adding elements of sculpture and screen-printing to the surface of each canvas.

Jacolby Satterwhite (b. 1986) is celebrated for a conceptual practice addressing crucial themes of labor, consumption, sex and fantasy through immersive installation, virtual reality and digital media. He uses a range of software to produce intricately detailed animations and live action film of real and imagined worlds populated by the avatars of artists and friends.

Each of the worlds composed in the present works speak to what Satterwhite considers the new American rituals: sex, drugs, money and sports. 

“Winner Room” concentrates on football and its intense physical demand, pairing a digital world with live action footage. Athletically-built figures wear helmets on a field flanked by sofas under multiplied flat screens mimicking game days at bars. These screens play documentations of an early performance by the artist where he attempts to pull a heavy football-shaped container filled with glitter over a 12-foot wall. 

“Room for Desmoiselles” is bathed in a purple light, the color of royalty, and repeatedly stars Picasso’s desmoiselles d'Avignon as avatars. The stage set— complete with spotlights, underground spaces of seduction, sex toys and self-care objects— is housed in a towering room of cyberspace reminiscent of retro video games.

Brent Wadden (b. 1979) has become known for his woven paintings which seek to entangle the traditional divisions between folk art and fine art. Composed of woven fibers, sewn and mounted on canvas, the artist’s abstract works complicate the painterly notion of surface, while reconsidering the concept of the handmade. Wadden typically uses second-hand fibers including wool, cotton, and acrylic to create his visually jagged, yet simultaneously mutable geometric constructions.
