Today I'm remembering Norwegian artist Ida Ekblad's A Day of Toil, Acrylics on unprimed linen canvas from Frieze New York on the countdown to Frieze Art Fair London starting in 10 days. So compelling and incredibly easy to live with.
Also the wonderful Jonathan Horowitz's "700 Dots" project on the Gavin Brown stand. Jonathan paid 700 participants $20 each to paint a neat black circle on a small white canvas, they were given very precise instructions and coached through the process. The dots were hung as soon as completed and the entire collection of dot paintings were sold as a work of the artist. This made me grin as I watched with fascination how people approached the task and concentrated intently on job in hand.
My Frieze Art New York experience was entirely due to the wonderful Modenus who brought me along on BlogTourNYC. So incredibly grateful to Veronika for inviting me.
