Oren and Bennett, 2022

I love the intimacy and tenderness of this work. To me, it is what love and desire would look like as a painting.

Hudinilson Jr.
Untitled, 1980's
$20,000–$50,000
Presented by Galeria Jacqueline Martins
,
 C10

This feels both intensely human and erotic, yet also undeniably machine-made, which feels like it should be a contradiction. But somehow it works.

Hudinilson Jr.
Untitled, s.d.
Under $10,000

I find this collage deeply affecting. I am both repulsed by it, and drawn to it, and I love that it feels incredibly intimate, like it might have just been found in the pages of a diary.

Wilhelm Sasnal
Untitled, 2022
€ 90,000
Presented by Sadie Coles HQ
D2

To me, this painting has the quality of a snapshot taken on a disposable camera, or an image you'd find on the internet, which I love. It feels like youth in a painting.

I love the pose, the color, the way she looks out at you. It feels to me like a very calm, serene painting.
