Frieze NY 2018: Colorful

One of my favorite things at Frieze were a family of hotly colorful artworks. There was a particular pallet of  bright purples and neon pinks and sometimes limes and yellows, often contrasted against dark accents, that I saw a lot of. Particularly in abstract works but also some figurative. It’s a bit as if Midcentury Abstract Expressionism and 1980s Memphis/Esprit style had a baby and then invited 60s psychedelia over to babysit. And yet somehow it looks entirely of the now. Not retro or dated at all. Check it out. (previous Frieze post is here. and oh, don't worry, there are more to come)
