Lorenzo Quinn’s possible showstopper for collector Steve Cohen

Our spies tell us that the Italian artist Lorenzo Quinn is working on a large-scale piece for the US hedge fund magnate and collector Steve Cohen which is due to be installed in Connecticut next year. The work is under wraps for now but Quinn thinks big; his latest showstopper entitled Dangerous Game, which was unveiled in Miami’s Wynwood district earlier this month, stands 26 feet high (a nuclear warhead is held aloft by a supersized hand). It matches up to the sculptor’s humongous piece Support installed earlier this year in Venice’s Grand Canal, comprising a giant pair of white resin hands that prop up the walls of the Ca’Sagredo Hotel. We’re assuming that Cohen’s commission will also be a whopper.
