The power of a Frank Stella 👊🏼. Being involved in the art world is very important to Londonewcastle- It helps us to challenge our perceptions. Art Basel ended today. A standout was Hannah Epstein, with her soft textile wall sculptures. We also loved the work of the Colombian artist Camilo Restrepo, whose new painting and collage work referenced Hollywood and pop culture icons. As always, the celebs, socialites, art collectors, affluent and the well-connected, all flocked to Miami. But the real chatter was about impact of a skidding stock market. Perhaps people will move from the stock market into something they can see and hang on the walls?. Although collectors have been more inclined to ponder and haggle before opening their checkbooks, some were still definitely buying!. One of our favourite artists Amy Sherald (Michelle Obama selected her to paint the former first lady’s official portrait) sold her latest portrait at the fair, for $175,000!!!. Beyond the fair, we went check out @ first solo museum show and of course the unbelievable street art @.
