Jim Lambie at Frieze Art Fair

As promised, I’ll be posting a few more of my favorites works from last month’s Frieze Art Fair at Randall’s Island. This piece, above and below, was created with mild steel and acrylic paint by Glasgow artist Jim Lambie.

I like how the materials used in this piece trick the eye when viewed from a distance. The fluid shapes seem like thick pieces of bent fabric that pull you in closer and almost appear to be moving.¬†I was drawn to the energetic colors used in this piece and the manipulation of space as a sculptural installation. Both of these elements seem to be trademarks of Lambie’s work and are also present in his well-known installation entitled¬†Zobop which uses colorful vinyl stripes to outline the architecture of the space it inhabits.
