Frieze London 2022: Which Painters Are On The Rise? Alice Godwin, δημοσίευση στο Artland Magazine [21/10/2022]
The dust has settled over Frieze week in London and the jury is in – painting is the darling of the art world 2022. From Gagosian’s Rothko chapel-inspired booth of Jadé Fadojutimi’s gestural abstractions to Laure Prouvost’s engulfing canvases at Lisson Gallery, there was an abundance of painting amongst the Frieze London 2022 exhibitors in Regent’s Park. As the art world gets back to its usual pre-COVID pace, it seems collectors of contemporary art are eager for the tangible experience of paint after years of peering through the glare of their computer screens.
Painters To Watch From Frieze Week 2022
Though some critics were scathing on the quality of painting at times (here’s looking at you Jonathan Jones), there were plenty of talented painters to discover amongst the Frieze London 2022 galleries. Here is a breakdown of some of the thrilling artists shown this October at Frieze London, where you can find their work, and what projects are on the horizon.
Polish painter Joanna Woś is a student at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna, but her psychologically-charged tableaux are already causing a stir. Through gossamer layers of paint, Woś mingles images of memory, fantasy, and fiction. Her alter ego often appears at the center of these electric scenes of sexual exchange, which explore what can be shown and what is taboo. At Frieze London 2022, Woś’s works could be found on the stands of Croy Nielsen and Galeria Wschód, which highlighted Woś as part of the Frieze Focus section devoted to emerging artists. Wschód has a few upcoming projects with Wós that are under wraps for now, but a 2023 show in the exhibition space ECHO in Cologne is on the cards.
