Opening Reception:
Monday November 9, 2015
6.30 – 8.30 pm

Dalya Luttwak’s sculpture explores the subterranean support systems that anchor and nourish the plants that we cultivate, harvest, and admire. Since 2007, Luttwak has expertly forged, hammered, welded, and painted steel – transforming the rigid metal into intriguing artworks that evoke the sinuous forms of roots. Working from actual, physical roots, which the artist often draws in all their complexity, Luttwak seeks to uncover the hidden beauty of roots, exploring the relationship between what grows above the ground and, more mysteriously, what grows below. Her sculptures, in essence, reveal what nature prefers to conceal.

Luttwak’s work has been exhibited both nationally and internationally, most notably during the 54th Annual Venice Biennale, the American University Museum at Katzen Arts Center, and the Kreeger Museum in Washington, DC.

The iconic pink snails first appeared in Miami during Art Basel 2010, followed by alligators cascading the Freedom Tower in the FOREVERGLADES Art Project with Miami Dade’s College Museum of Art + Design in 2012, and red snails in New York City,  where they inhabited Central Park in 2013 for the REGENERATION Art Project.  This past art week Miami realized CRACKING BRIDGE, an installation about communication across cultures.

Blue and Joy is the name under which the Berlin based Italian born duo Fabio La Fauci and Daniele Sigalot, have been signing their works since they began their artistic career in 2005.
Since then the two have been making something of a name for their prolific and eclectic production.
After showing throughout Europe, they entered different museums (La Triennale in Milan, The Royal Palace in Naples, MACRO in Rome) including the MDC Museum of Art and Design in 2011.
In 2014 Blue and Joy’s unique aluminum paper planes traveled throughout the entire planet, after being selected by Fendi to create installations in 28 of their biggest flagship across the world. After flying over Tokyo, New York, Beijing, Paris, Hong Kong, London and all the corners of the globe, they land in Miami, along with a whole new body of artwork.
Blue and Joy celebrates ten years in the art world with an artist residency in Miami creating new works. They will have exhibitions at Galleria Ca’ d’Oro’s Miami (march) and New York (september) locations.
The art duo first showed in the Us with Galleria Ca’ d’Oro in 2011, that promoted a show at the MDC Museum of Art and Design ‘The wind doesn’t have plan’. They will return to the US with “When the wind retraces its steps”, at Galleria Ca’ d’Oro Gallery from March 12.

Miami, Fla. (November 2014)Gloria Porcella, owner of Galleria Ca’ d’Oro will honor award-winning photographer and director Fabrizio Cestari during Art Basel Miami 2014.

For this year’s Art Basel Miami, Galleria Ca’ d’Oro will celebrate the incredible works of Cestari, whose photographs, rich with ironic and subliminal messages, have received a multitude of awards and recognition by organizations worldwide—Prix de la Photographie, International Photography Awards and Sony World Photography Awards, to name a few. His photographs have been exhibited in galleries globally and have also been featured in magazines such as Vanity Fair. Cestari has also photographed A-listers including Al Pacino, Willem Dafoe, Dustin Hoffman and Spike Lee, as well as style icons and entrepreneurs Dean and Dan Caten of DSquared.

Bio Fabrizio Cestari (born January 13. 1979), is a commercial photographer, fine-art photographer, music video director and artist.
His photography style sometimes references art history and is rich of subliminal and ironic messages.  As a child he took down and reassembled his father collection of cameras.
His only toys were superheroes, pin – up Barbies and gloomy dolls which later he starts to collect until now. Because he studied constantly, driven by a need to learn as much as possible as well as to escape from the real life of his generation, he preferred the loneliness, so he came in touch with the main inspiration of the pop and surreal and by his own photography evolution, he  created a remarkable and renewed fantasy world.
Photographer and director Fabrizio Cestari is the Winner of numerous international awards such as the Sony World Photography one, he is also veteran of the victory of the 1st prize at the International Photography Awards in NY, the most important recognition in the photography world. His style is inspired by surreal and slightly irreverent, he created portraits for the most important celebrities like Al Pacino, Woody Allen, Dustin Hoffman, Eleonora Abbagnato, Roberto Bolle, Abel Ferrara, Willem Dafoe, Spike Lee, Stromae and Bob Sinclair.
He also started his career as director in 2012, directing tv shows. He won the Medimex award 201 3 for the best music video with “La nuova stella di Broadway” of Cesare Cremonini.

featuring SUNBRELLA Fabric


1545 Collins Avenue, Miami Beach, FL 33139

DECEMBER 4th to 6th 2014

Blue Forest is a conceptual work of art that reflects how easily our environment can be changed. I transformed the trees at The James Royal Palm by enveloping them in blue Sumbrell frabric…not to hjide the identity of the trees but rather to serve as a figurative bandage of environmental concern, in the hopes of stimulating a new sensibility and ecological understanding”.

This installation of Land Art, “Blue Forest”, intends to give the viewer an experience that creates awareness of environmental issues through the use of art.

Tree trunks are wrapped with blue fabric, creating a stage and temporary effect (touchable). The colour blue (in natural light,) is chosen by the artist to encourage the viewer to reflect on the installation’s environmental message. Showing the viewer that only simple changes are needed in the tree’s appearance, to bring awareness of how little it takes to change the environment. Representing a simple and effective concept for preservation.

“Blue Forest” changes a place in a spectacular but temporary way. The ecological balance of the place and use of natural materials are taken into consideration.

Ludmilla Radchenko was born in Omsk, Siberia on 11 november 1978, where in 1999 awards a degree in Fashion Design. In the same year she moves to Italy to work as a model, show-girl and actress. In 2009 she chooses to pursue her greatest passion: painting. Instinctive and vital, her loud voice art, dressed with real life drives her toward PopRealism. Since december 2010 her first catalogue “Power Pop” edited by Skira can be found in Feltrinelli libraries with a critic essay by Fortunato D’Amico. Ludmilla creates a painting for a champion of moto GP Jorge Lorenzo, for F1 world’s champion Sebastian Vettel, for the rock star Jamiroquai. Far from presenting the object again and again in an hyperbolic and obsessive way as seen in the “classic” pop tradition, Radchenko loads it with social content in open accusation to its exploitation. In deference to the pop spirit, Radchenko, doesn’t limit her interest to canvas but spreads her touch to fashion and design too.

The “Siberian soup” FullART by Ludmilla Radchenko was registered as a new brand. Ludmilla’s explosive art feeds itself with real life, icons, tragedies, common successes and hopes. Photos and scans give birth to digital creations, which combined with painting create compositions enriched of visual messages, collage of real life with touches of irony.

Ludmilla Radchenko’s reflections she has dedicated herself to transcribe upon the canvas her observations on the world start with the recognition that she herself is an active fragment of a communication network that stretches well beyond the fashion system. For a young woman of the contemporary West from a culture unlike our own, the difficulty is clear in reading a history of protagonists raised to the status of heroes and to transgressive myths belonging to an industrial and a post-industrial generation with POP elements. What will become of our contemporary legends? For a short time they will remain and their names, postures, clothes, slogans, music will be recognized, up to becoming echoes that will disappear in the depths of space time. Only art will remain before future humanity, and each time it will be rediscovered amidst deserts and under the stars.
