Okay, I apologize for starting this post with a very poor pun but it just had to be done.
Earlier this summer I managed to make my way to Randall’s Island for the first time to witness Frieze Art Fair – where contemporary and modern artists and galleries from all over the world come to showcase their art. Before moving to New York, I had no appreciation for anything beyond Post-Impressionism. I failed to see the merit of pure ideas rather than just technique. After spending countless hours wandering the many galleries and seeing the works of artists like Chuck Close, modern art has finally rubbed off on me.
