Armory Art Fair and more

Mar 13, 2012


Daniel Hesidence
D'Amelio Gallery

It was thrilling to go to the art fairs while I was in NY, and what great timing for me! Each fair had such a uniquely different vibe from the next. The first one I popped in on was the ADAA (Art Dealers Association of America) That's where I saw Daniel Hesidence's work. He had about 10 small portraits up like this one and while I was there the entire show sold to a museum venue.


The wonderful Philip Pearlstein's work at the ADAA


We now have Romare Bearden US stamps. But I hadn't seen the abstracts. And on the right, I liked the way this gallery integrated these three artists works.

And then I went to the Armory exhibit...


(right) there was a lot of this, high gloss iconography.


Paul Winstanley Veil 24 (right) This is a large painting. It's very simple and more of an illustration, but it was beautiful.



Nick Goss, Casbah II. (left) On the right I was intrigued by the floor art.


Peter Zimmerman


This is a huge painting by Ramazan Bayrakoglu and on the right a detail shot.


Ekrem Yalcindag(Ekrem Yalcindag) made from rope. I found this Laura Lancaster painting on the right shocking. It's as if I painted it. They were all like that. I was in such a state of shock when I walked into the gallery space that I even said something out loud. The gallery owners snorted!

And then I went to Scope:The vibe was entirely different. More casual.


This video is of a sculpture by Marck. It's LCD, metal, plastic, and movie loop. Neue Freiheit 80 x 20 cm

IMG_0853.jpgIMG_0852.jpg This piece (right) was made entirely from buttons hanging. How long it took to install I don't know, or how to pack it so it doesn't get completely tangled!


On the left this trend was prevalent. On the right was an interesting piece of multidisciplinary art. photography, painting, video and performance. by Gregory Scott


R Hambleton(left) The piece on the right, I don't know who that is but it was marked sold and I was wondering if that was because it was satirizing John Curin.
