A Pocket Guide to Painting at SPRING/BREAK Art Show 2019
Contributed by Fay Sanders and Bob Szantyr / New York art fair season is here, and SPRING/BREAK, in its eighth year, has mounted another bold and energized display of contemporary art in an unexpected space. The new location, in a United Nations building, hosts a six-day presentation of work by over 400 artists. More than 100 curators have taken a shot at the timely theme �Fact and Fiction,� which seems perfect in terms of the new UN location, as well as ideally suited to painting approaches. Alternative realities – utopian, dystopian, and in between – are everywhere. This big, rich display of sculpture, painting, drawing, video, performance, and of course wallpaper offers something for everyone. Here are ten paintings that caught our attention.
If those are the best or better paintings I’m glad I skipped SPRINGbreak this year…very UNDERwhelming…!!
