Delve deeper into Frieze 2015

May 21, 2015

Writing these posts about the art that I see sometimes takes longer than the actual presentation of the art itself. But for me sharing the art that I see is like going on a really great trip. Here are more of my selects from Frieze 2015.

Simon Periton, Guerilla Gardener, 2015
Steel, spray paint, lacquer, 82.625 x 51.75x.5in
-Not sure what this sculpture was about but loved how it changed as walk around it.

Matti Braun, Untitled, 2015
Silk, dye, powder-coated aluminium, 260 x 200 x 4cm
-Basic color study similar to the almighty Rothko but, regardless of who it is inspired by, was beautifully done.

AA Bronson, White Flag #3, 2015
Rabbit skin glue, champagne chalk and raw honey on cotton and metal grommet on linen, 94.5 x 156cm
-A provocative piece to show at a U.S. fair. Also after reading the material list, I have no idea how it was made.

Andreas Lolis, 21st Century Relics

-While most of the time I have no idea what is going on in Lolis’ work, there is something always impressive about an allegory with gold leaf detail.

Philippe Decrauzat, Flags, 2015
Acrylic on canvas, 46.125 x 46.125in
-The subject of contemporary corporate art is becoming more and more popular in non-corporate arenas. While this is a great example of art that incorporates movement and perspective as well as plays tricks with your eyes, I wonder if it sells for people’s homes.

XU Zhen, Play – Spire of the Sky, 2013
Genuine and artificial leather, BDSM accessories, foam, metal, wood, 310 x 60 x 60cm
-I’m all for progressive art- art that pushes boundaries and people’s limits. But when I saw this bondage and sex toy tower, it made me curious where this would go and who would buy it.

Darren Almond, Fullmoon@Waimea Canyon, 2013
C print, 70.86 x 70.86in
-Wish I was capable of capturing this photograph without the reflection because it is so beautiful.

Olafur Eliasson, Your confidence, 2014

Jenny Holzer, Selection of plaques from Living Series, 1980-1982
Enamel on metal, hand-painted sign, 21 x 23in
-Every fair is guilty of having a lot of pieces of art with words and neon being the subject. Luckily this Holzer selection is actually interesting.

Linder, Principle of Totality (Version I),
2012

Gerben Mulder, Roosters Song, 2015
Gouacher, pencil and pigment dispersion on watercolor paper, 142.5 x 160cm
-Roosters Song is one of those pieces that the more you stare at it, the more you see. The abstract forms and rough drawing help to create great movement.

Giuseppe Penone @Marian Goodman Gallery
-I love when a gallery designs the booth. The dynamic use of the booth, tent height, and organization of the art makes a subject seem more attractive and an artist’s vision more clear.
