It is our special pleasure to invite you to this year’s Frieze Art Fair. The selection of works is firmly grounded in the artists’ engagement with reality and their conviction to bringing the poetic fragrance of their processes to the forefront. The result is uninhibited, unambiguous, and lyrical works.
New York painter Ellen Berkenblit presents two intensely colored paintings from a new body of work. Anne Collier presents an ocean vista from her 'Open Book' series. Nicole Eisenman engages with today’s culture by tackling a ubiquitous mode of communication: Snapchat.
As a preview to her first exhibition in New York, we are presenting a painting by Berlin-based Ellen Gronemeyer. London-based artist Sarah Jones presents her startling photograph Pleasure Gardens, depicting a fountain in Regent's Park. More from this series can be seen in Frieze Week magazine.
Shio Kusaka’s ceramics combine Japanese and Western sensibilities: a new carved porcelain vase will be on view at the booth. Lara Schnitger—whose fifth installment of Suffragette City (a public performance sculpture inspired by early 20th-century women’s rights movements) just took place in Dresden—presents a sculpture and a quilted banner. Installed on a low platform, London-based artist Francis Upritchard assembles a group of improbable sculptures: figures, tankards, vases and plates, similar to her colorful presentation at this year’s Venice Biennale.
