Frieze: LA 2023 Highlights
We are happy to share with you some of the highlights and hand-selected picks by Design Director Jessica Iwaniec from her visit to one of our favorite California art fairs, Frieze: LA 2023.
William N. Copley
Untitled (Apples & Oranges), 1986
Galerie Max Hetzler
Galerie Max Hetzler presented William N. Copley’s Apples & Oranges from 1986. The work, which is acrylic and lace on canvas, starts to reveal new layers of focus the longer the viewer explores the piece.
"This William N. Copley painting would lend itself to any room and scheme very nicely, making an impactful statement but not an overbearing one."— Jessica Iwaniec, Design Director
Blue Sleeve, 2023
Overduin & Co.
Overduin & Co. presented Patricia Treib’s Blue Sleeve from 2023. The oil on canvas work portrays a hyperrealistic still life of striped silk fabric with hills and valleys of light and shadow, movement, and organic form.
Nino Mier Gallery
Nino Mier Gallery displayed Roger Herman’s glazed ceramic work on a pedestal, allowing viewers to circulate around the piece. Bright color and composition bring the vessel to life, offering a unique personality to each work.
"Roger Herman's work complements many surfaces with bright, vibrant colors. He has been creating these ceramics this for many decades and they are really gorgeous."— Jessica Iwaniec
Untitled (Seated Woman), 2023
Sean Kelly Gallery
Sean Kelly Gallery exhibited Jose Dávila’s Seated Woman from 2023. The archival pigment print expresses an abstract perspective of the human body. As a formally trained architect, Dávila creates works that reference 20th century avant-garde art and architecture.
Texture Mapping III, 2019-2021, 2022
Stephen Friedman Gallery
Stephen Friedman Gallery displayed a large exhibit for Andreas Eriksson’s Texture Mapping III from 2019-2021, 2022. The installation offers a 45-part series of texture and color studies in acrylic, egg oil tempera, and oil on canvas.
Talia Chetrit’s Ash from 2021, presented by Kaufmann Repetto, shows her photography as a candid moment in vivid colors unfold before her. Deep blue mesh fabric encases her subject in a field and offers a study of where still-life meets a portrait.
"Talia Chetrit is a very talented photographer whose work is extremely powerful and not to be missed."— Jessica Iwaniec
