Past Featured NAP Artists at VOLTA NY 2014

One of the privileges of working for a contemporary art fair whose focus is solo-artist projects is the opportunity to see a range of works by artists from all over, be they from Bushwick or Berlin. This could mean their newest series or a multiyear survey of their oeuvre, sort of like a mini retrospective staged within their exhibiting gallery's booth.

As in years past, VOLTA NY features a plethora of artists working with paint. The range is fantastic, and I think indicative of contemporary trends within the medium: angular figures and aggressively colorful compositions in a New Objectivity vein from very young, non-German artists including Anna Navasardian (Armenian but New York-based, showing with Galerie Andreas Binder, Munich) and Pawel Sliwinski (Polish, showing with Beers Contemporary, London); representational works in thick, gestural impasto, both in Kim Dorland's grand, en plein air style (Angell Gallery, Toronto), and in Bobby Mathieson's intimately scaled portraiture (Lyons Wier Gallery, New York); and abstraction both super-reductive (like Clare Grill, showing with FRED.GIAMPIETRO, New Haven) and cosmically colorful (Jennifer Lefort, showing with Patrick Mikhail Contemporary, Ottawa); plus every conceivable style in between. - Brian Fee, Austin Contributor

Lee Gainer at VOLTA NY

Well we are back from New York and we are beat! If you call the office today, go easy on Alexa, it was a late night traveling. We still have tons of our own photographs to go through from the fair, which should be posted tomorrow. In the meantime, we have a final round of images submitted by our guest photo blogger, Lee Gainer. Last time she checked in, Gainer had sent images from Armory and Scope. Now she shares her favorite pieces from the VOLTA fair (one of our favorites!). See her pictures after the jump, and be sure to come back tomorrow for our staff favorites from Armory, Volta, and Independent.
