Spray-paint, acrylic, pencil on board. © Rhys Coren Rhys Coren British artist Rhys Coren, who has a solo booth with Seventeen Gallery, is one of the hottest artists to have emerged from the Royal Academy. His marquetry works twist the idea of painting into something verging on sculpture. The largely abstract, intimately sized works recall the vibrancy of Ettorre Sottsass fused with retro soccer uniforms and Josef Albers. Drawing on his fascination with the syncopation of house music and disco, Coren’s animations and painted pieces epitomize modern play. Lisa Alvarado Bridget Donahue has quickly established itself as one of the most important new galleries on the Lower East Side, with a strong program emphasizing emerging and iconic female artists. Lisa Alvarado, who is showing with them at Frieze, is a perfect example. The Chicago-based artist makes vibrant, deeply colorful hanging textile pieces that, at times, form a theatrical or ritualistic environment for her band, Natural Information Society. Marc Hundley New York–based Canadian artist Marc Hundley is turning Canada gallery’s booth into an installation that echoes his own apartment. He’s best known for fake band posters that replicate the history of typographic design but are much more emotional and personal. Using song lyrics, he creates stunning false advertisements for (sometimes fictional) gigs by David Bowie, The Smiths, or Buffy Sainte-Marie, each with their own very different dreamlike identities. Elaine Cameron-Weir Elaine Cameron-Weir is one of the central artists for this year’s Frieze Projects, which are curated again by Cecilia Alemani, who also oversees High Line Art. She’s building an air-raid shelter outside the fair—something that is increasingly meaningful in today’s political climate. Two neon sculptures inside the space will only be able to be glimpsed through a door. Cameron-Weir’s work has a subtle delicacy that should shine in the context of the fair. Emily Mae Smith Emily Mae Smith’s paintings, which will be on show at Rodolphe Janssen, are as delicious as glistening ripe berries. Cherries are a recurring motif in her work, as are eggplants, bananas, cracked eggs, tongues, big round sunglasses and melting ice cubes. There is something stylized and—at times—retro about her humorous and seductive work. Like Matt Bass or Matthew Brannon, she is an artist who takes the history of aesthetics and makes very contemporary pop art. — Frieze New York runs from May 5th through May 7th.
