AFFORDABLE ART FAIR
NYC FALL 2010
On Friday we had a chance to visit the Affordable Art Fair. It was fun to walk among the booths and see what is going on and actually consider to buy an Art piece.
The Francisca Ahlers was our ultimate favorite, hard to see here, how precious this piece is. Intricate with it's whimsical drawing technique. Overhearing others stopping up and saying as well "Oh, this one I could look at for hours". The Gallerist had already the first day sold two of her pieces and said that the young Chilien artist Ahlers has already won a prestigious Spanish award.

Silver Gelatin Photograph (25 editions)
30" x 24"
Alicia David Contemporary Art (London)
This photo, was also voted one of Artinfo's favorites. I enjoyed the cleverness of the combination of "Shapes".

Emmanuel Fremin Gallery (New York)
This was the ECO element of the fair. And as Kamol Akhunov the artist said "This piece is in constant evolution". This Earth installation will continue to leak to prove to us what an impact it has from us and on us.
Blood preserved on Plexiglas, UV resin
Krause Gallery (New York)
Slightly creepy this piece after I realized it was made with real blood. But his work made a strong impression, so repulsed or not I thought I should add a piece of his to show.
wire & emulsion on canvas
Woolff Gallery (London)
This piece must be seen up close, the wires are added as reflections on the drawing underneath.
Somehow it made me think of a lot of intellectuals meeting up to have a Gin and tonic and chat about literature. But, this might just be because I know the Gallery is English?
Archival inkjet photograph fragments
Mark Jason Gallery (London)
This large nude is pretty impressive, made with small little fragments that makes it look like a mosaic piece. Pamela Stretton creates a whole series of these, with legs and lips...

Bound and Determined
I also want to show you this piece "Bound and Determined". The geniusness in it, is that it is standing on it's own by the "leather" looking straps.
After all the impressions, we moved ourselves down to Tribeca to the Terroir restaurant that has a perfect attitude of "Sit your ass down and let us make the decision for you" nicely written down on their menu. Something that suited us perfectly after all the impressions. Great to just enjoy a glass of bubbles, relax and not make any more decisions:)
