Ed Ruscha has always been one of my favourite artists, and the feeling of this work is very strong.

Irma Blank, Luxembourg & Co.
Radical Writings, Schrift-Atem-Aufeichnugen II 15-10-91, 1991
Oil on cardboard

I.Blank, Radical Writings, Schrift-Atem-Aufzeichnungen II 15-10-91, 1991, oil on cardboard_olio su cartone, cm.34,5x70,5

This is an artist I like very much. I can feel her painting process as if she is meditating.

Claes Oldenburg, Paula Cooper Gallery
Clothespin – 4ft. – Soft Version, 1975
Canvas painted with latex and filled with kapok with metal hanger and wooden clothespins

Claes Oldenburg

I've just always loved the humour in his work.

Lucia Koch, Christopher Grimes
Gadget, 2020 
Pigment print on cotton paper, UV matte laminate, wood frame

Lucia Koch

I think this piece is cute, relaxed, and interesting.

Bruce Nauman, Sperone Westwater
Studies for Holograms (A-E), 1970

Bruce Nauman

I see in this work the boring self when I was young, but it also seems like a poetic expression to me.


Find all these works on Frieze Viewing Room, open from 9 to 16 October, with Preview Days on 7 to 8 October.
