Frieze New York

 
 
 
The best art fair in all the islands of New York. And it’s also the place where you don’t have to wait hours for Mission Chinese. Open until Monday, take the ferry and go! For those that can’t make it, here are our highlights… and there are a lot.

In Which Caleb Neelon Tries to Explain Alex Lukas

I’ve known Alex Lukas since he was a runty little Rhode Island School of Design illustration major teenager more than a dozen years ago. Ever since, he has been hitting my mailbox every once in a while with his newest ‘zines. I have close to fifty of them now, and while I’m missing a few, taken together they really reveal what Alex is all about.

This slideshow of recent images by Alex show some of his ‘zines and some of his new works on paper. The visual lines between print and handmade blur a lot in his work when you see them as a group, and I like that.

Alex is a very good researcher. Not really in the sense of someone you’d hire as a research assistant, but in the sense of someone who is really, really stubborn and will pound away trying to figure out what he needs to do to get the visual that’s in his head onto the paper he’s working on, whether that’s a relatively quickie ‘zine or one of his massive works on paper.

Openings & Parties: Rob Pruitt – The Last Panda

In the wreckage of what used to be Gavin Brown’s Passerby, Rob Pruitt displayed a farewell painting to a subject very familiar in his art, the panda bear. Christos Katsiaouni was there to document the final countdown.

Cabinets of Curiosities

These images are from Belgian street artist / naturalist ROA’s recently closed show Stop Over at Bodson-Emelinckx Gallery. Photographed by Colin M Day, they are accompanied by images from ROA’s zoo, as well as a great video by Colin tying the whole journey to Belgium together. As an added bonus, you’ll also find a segment from Brussels TV about Colin documenting ROA. Enjoy!

Openings & Parties: Focus Paintings and XSTRACTION at The Hole

Ah, Spring. It brings bursts of color to the go-to blackness of New York, and forms shapes from the bundled layers. I say this both about the work in XSTRACTION and the crowd that gathered at The Hole. Holton Rower’s new paintings are deceptively great as well, drawing the viewer’s focus to the out-of-focus. Christos Katsiaouni was on autofocus to photograph it all.
