Issue 75
May 2003

By their sheer variety Wilhelm Sasnal’s paintings present a puzzle. Mark Landsman unravels the thread that runs from portrait through landscape to abstract.

“Smashing a Starbucks window has become a lifestyle choice now, so you might as well go full circle: buy a fucking latte, sit down and have a think.” Oliver Payne & Nick Relph talk to frieze about Carnaby Street, Marks & Spencers’ sandwiches, their latest video Gentlemen and being depressed young men.

Also featured: Will Bradley on Aleksandra Mir, Tom Morton on Charles Avery, Charles LaBelle on Spencer Finch, Jan Verwoert on Marko Lulic and Ronald Jones on Michael Beutler.
