ART REVIEW certainly summed it all up “There’s certainly bling to be found inside the Frieze London tent this year, in large part courtesy of Gagosian’s display of Jeff Koons’s ginormo multimillion-pound shiny stainless steel sculptures (complete with their own security detail). But apart from Koons himself, cheerfully posing for the press in front of his creations, there has, like last year, been less buzz, less glitz, less glam, less free-flowing booze and fewer showbiz celebs.”
Sarah Wilson say – well … this Thursday is the opening of the Edinburgh Art Fair with even less glitz, glam and celebs than London but its closer and my art is there being represented by the Arusha Gallery.
15 affordable pieces from my new collection called “Faded Stars”, prints on wood, worked into with pencil, varnished and sanded back to look like old posters peeling off walls. Idea knicked from work I saw at the PAD Art Fair in London. Hope to see you there xx
About SARAH WILSON
A conceptual artist whose work and research centres round the subject of glamour, 1920-60's actresses and memory.
Member of the printmakers workshop for the past 10 years and works predominantly with woodcuts but has recently discovered the joy of Toyobo relief printing so be prepared for more of them.
My work involved photographing, sketching, printing and reworking images .
I like things that look like mistakes, loving the medium and the rawness of the printed image.
My influences are fairly diverse but when in doubt I cant go wrong with Bruce Nauman, Picasso, Matthew Barney, Helen Chadwick and anything to do with the Flux Movement.
Happy to take on your commissions - just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
