It has been quite some time now but earlier in October I attended the other art fair. I found it a difficult fair to go round. It is very bright, it is very crowded, it is very nosy, it has stark white walls. Much of the art work is indifferent.
I do enjoy going though as there are always some people who shine out of the dross. This year the select few are.
The above are not everyone I like. They are everyone I like whose websites (or elsewhere) would consent to provide me with photos of their work that are compatible with this blog. There are two more artists whose defense of their IP is more rigorous and prevents such activities. They are:
Olivier Leger: Oliver makes this very detailed drawings of animals, such as Orcas. They are incredibly complex and on close inspection the whole is made up of a series of smaller intricate drawings such as water spouts, fish, giraffes etc. There is a lot of skill on display here. His pitch was good, a massive Orca original drawing you in and more reasonably priced prints to actually sell.
Corinne Natel; Lovely, splashy, organic colourful paintings. They are like different waves of colour crashing into each other, or attractive plumes of oil mixing. Very pretty things.
That's it folks.
