Acclaimed Hungarian Sculptor Agnès Nagy will make her Miami debut this fall during Miami Art Week with her exhibition “Soulmates” at Platform, a concept gallery in Miami Beach, in collaboration with JB Contemporary Art.
Vernissage takes place on Thursday, Dec. 2, from 6 to 10 p.m. Nagy creates impressive, realistic animal sculptures that give voice to the soul of her wild subjects.
Nagy’s sculptures provide an evocative, powerful representation of wildlife, ranging from fierce hunters like lionsand jaguars, to domesticated animals such as bulls and horses, to sea creatures and insects including the spiny lobster and stag beetle. Her work embodies the soulmate-like bonds between humans and animals. While their exteriors are hard, each piece expresses a joyful display of movement and exudes strength, play and freedom. Each sculpture carries a symbolic message and viscerally interprets the human-animal connection.
“Miami is an exciting place to share my love of animals and nature with like- minded art enthusiasts and collectors,” Nagy said. “I am thrilled to be back in South Florida after a successful exhibition at Art Palm Beach in early 2020.
Platform by Sogol Décor is a Salon-Style Art and Design Hub located in the SoFi neighborhood of Miami Beach. It is a unique gallery giving creatives, industry professionals and art connoisseurs a place to connect and collaborate.
The sculptures in the “Soulmates” exhibition range from $4,500 for smaller pieces, up to $35,000 for large sculptures.
This exhibition is working closely with the South Florida SPCA as their charitable partner, which includes an interactive and educational experience for children and families taking place on Sunday, Dec. 5, from noon to 3 p.m., and will include an animal adoption opportunity.
“I didn’t choose animals — they were the ones who found me and refuse to let me go,” Nagy said. “I am grateful that I am able to share my work in Miami though a collaboration that supports the South Florida SPCA, a cause that is dear to my heart.”
Nagy will be present for the exhibition opening on Dec. 2, and for private viewings through Dec. 5. The exhibition will run through Feb. 28, 2022, and can be seen by request.Call 301-254-5907 to make an appointment, or send email to email@example.com.
