NADA, the New Art Dealers Alliance Fair, was one of the most pleasurable fairs to visit. The hammocks and lush green space surrounding the tents complimented the light humoured mood of the fair. NADA is a fair which encourages and promotes New Art Dealers and emerging innovative artists.
Some works I enjoyed James Bonachea’s organized randomness and Ariel Orozco’s reworking of unexpected colour at Myto Gallery
, and Scott Treleaven pensive collage at Kavigupta Gallery
NADA showed a raw and youthful and extrodinary progressive art. It is always an adrenalyn fueled pleasure to see booth after booth of innovation and new novel art works. Honorable mention going to ATM Gallery
, Katrin Sigurdardottir at Eleven Rivington
, Robert Mann Gallery
, and Loretta Lux at Torch Gallery.
I saw this painting with the magnifying glass hung beside it….. If you saw Charlie Kaufman’s film Synecdoche, New York, you couldn’t help but making the reference to the protagonist’s artist wife who creates microscopic paintings which are viewed during a massive retropective assisted by magnification goggles.
