london gallery sadie coles presents an immersive filed of ‘small rain’ by urs fischer at art basel miami beach. a psychedelic sea of pastel-colored plaster raindrops pour overhead visitors to the gallery booth with a quality that resonates with a cartoonish flair. reclining nude figures are repeated throughout the floor space, each casually lying headless on a crudely formed chaise lounge. evocative of tragic pompeian casts from ancient times, the fragmented ladies contrast the mass of colorful, windswept raindrops above.
