My Favorite Works from Frieze New York

The art world has been abuzz over the inaugural New York edition of London’s Frieze Art Fair. The crowds who flocked to Randall’s Island this past week were rewarded with new work from 180 top galleries worldwide. I love that global influences in art are becoming more available, and Frieze is especially interesting because it offers fare for casual browsers and high-end collectors alike. As The New York Times describes:

“In just under a decade, the fair has gone from being a scrappy upstart to becoming a fixture on the international art circuit, a requisite stop for an elite group of buyers and sellers and, increasingly, for a broader public that just likes to look.”

As an interior designer, I studied the Frieze catalogue with the view of how each piece might enliven a living space. Some works that stood out:

A Square of Electric Light… by Daniel Buren

Bookshelf by Roe Ethridge

Abadia from Lower Left by James Casebere

Artex Painting by Dan Rees

Budapester Strasse by Jeremy Gilbert-Rolfe

Act 3 (#25) by Janice Kerbel

Freischwimmer 198 by Wolfgang Tillmans

GM Building, New York by Andy Warhol

For those who missed the New York festivities, the Frieze Art Fair will be in London in October.

For as long as I can remember, I’ve been fascinated by design and the subtle impact of our surroundings. Some of my earliest influences still resonate – I think of the dark woods and textured lodens of my father’s shooting club, the smell of fresh paint on a new canvas, and the bold symmetry of the Philip Johnson Glass house just down the street. For me, it was a natural path to become an Interior Designer. I love what I do. I’ve created this Journal to share my thoughts, finds and design inspirations. I hope you enjoy it!
