NYC's Frieze Art Fair was an enormous success!!!
A fabulous selection of international galleries 
showing paintings, drawings, 
sculpture, installations, & my favorite category....
artist's "furniture accessortations"!!!
 
Soooo much to see & sooo little time .....
& this is only the tip of the "accessorator's iceberg"!!!

Stunning Design .... Artist's Furniture @ 2012 ArtRio!!!

In my world of "accessorations" ........
fabulous art & fantastic design are interchangeable!!!

And my visit to Brazil confirmed my theory!!!

I adore the biomorphic sculptures & installations of 
Brazilian artist Ernesto Neto!!!
And I have fallen madly & passionately in-love 
with the desk & chairs
he made specifically for his NYC gallery, 
Tanya Bonakdar to use at ArtRio!!!
I wonder if "they" are allowed to travel to NYC 
& live at my house!!!

I am always awed by Cuban/American artist 
Jorge Pardo's practice ..... 
a stunning dialogue between art & design!!!
This spectacular suite of limited edition furniture & lighting,
used in situ at ArtRio,
is in production in several color combinations 
& is available from Galerie Neugerriemschneider, Berlin.
My problem is ....
which combination do I want!!!

Art ... Furniture ... Design ... Interiors @ Frieze, NYC!

The scope of my world as a "collector/accessorator" 
is rapidly expanding ....
interior, furniture, art, & design are becoming one!!!

It became especially apparent last week ....
when I wandered around NYC's first Frieze Art Fair!!!
And here's why ......

Artist Mickalene Thomas is working on a series of paintings 
that all references "interiors".

Furniture/sculpture from Max Lamb, Franz West, 
Richard Artschwager, Allison Katz
is both for sale by dealers & is being "used" in the booths.

Artists Gelitin, Matt Golden, & Olga Koumoundouros 
have incorporated "furniture" into their work.

Martino Gamper's & Hun-Chung Lee's "art" is furniture!!!

And finally ....,, 
English gallerist Stephen Friedman's booth 
is "furnished" & everything is for sale!!!

This confirms my newest theory .....
there is a single "dialogue" incorporating the worlds of 
art, interior, furniture, & design ......
making everything an "accessoration"!!!

Mattia Bonetti @ Paul Kasmin's Booth Was to Die For!!!

I was completely enthralled & enamored .......
falling head over heels in love,
with this deliciously delightful Mattia Bonetti settee
at the Paul Kasmin Gallery!!! 

Bonetti really is the
"furniture accessorator supreme"!!!

I absolutely adore his work ......
(see 12/3/09 & 4/9/10)
and this was my favorite piece at New York's first

Gelitin's Divine Stools at Greene Naftali @ Frieze!!!!

I love the Frieze Art Fair in Regents Park, London .........
And I adore these stools from Gelitin, an artists collective ........
featured at NYC's Greene Naftali Gallery.......
 
Sooooooo up my alley ....
Do I buy one or all four???????
