Mattera's pics of the NY fairs

Joanne Mattera went into the New York fairs knowing that she couldn’t do the same kind of intensive reporting she does in Miami, so she went to view rather than report. But she couldn't help taking a few snaps. "Perhaps not surprisingly, some of the same artists whose work I've liked in the past were the ones whose work I was liking at these fairs, and at the same galleries. I may never get to Dublin, for instance, but I've come to expect that the Rubicon Gallery will have something geometric by Ronnie Hughes, whom I've never met and whose work I know only through the art fairs, and that I will find it appealing. I also looked for Sarah Morris at White Cube, London; Imi Knoebel at Galerie Nacht St. Stephan, Vienna; and my new favorite, Mindy Shapero at Breeder, Athens, and was not disappointed." If you follow her blog, you know she likes geometry, materiality and color. Check out the images.
