Frieze Art Fair: Favorites

Before it gets too late, I wanted to share some of my favorite pieces from last month’s Frieze Art Fair on Randal’s Island. It was a bit of a hassle to get there on the crowded ferry, but well worth the wait. The work ranged from painting and sculpture to mixed-media installations and some time-based work. Here’s are a few bits from the show that caught my attention…

I love the simplicity of this series by JD Willims of Cabinet Gallery in London. Created by running paper repeatedly though an old Xerox machine to print a variety of forms, these remind me of Laszlo Moholy Nagy’s photograms.

This mobile was mesmerizing to stand and watch although I  had a hard time finding the corresponding artist’s name. Can anyone fill me in?

This sculpture entitled ‘Double D’ by Lara Schnitger, stood close to the entrance and was constructed entirely of wood and fabric bras.

This acrylic painting, entiled Tantric Painting by Peter Davies, was a beautiful study on texture. Here’s a detail of the piece below.

These photograms by Lisa Oppenheimer were exposed and solarized with fire. The original images were taken at the enfield fire – where a Sony distribution center was set ablaze by rioters.

I just noticed that all of these pics are black and white. There was a great deal of color at the fair too! I’ll be sure to post more of those selects later this week.
