ART BASEL

JANNIS VARELAS
Krinzinger

Jannis Varelas

This is a killer painting that uses symbols that are very personal to the artist. Many of his paintings are hanging in our loft right now—he just keeps getting better and better.



FRIEDRICH KUNATH
BQ Berlin

Friedrich Kunath
Moody, emotional, mysterious, and gorgeous. This is our fifth painting of his. We have lived with his art for a year and love it.


CHARLIE BILLINGHAM
Supportico Lopez

Charlie Billingham

Billingham is completely new to us. We loved his installation at the fair. He is coming to New York to replicate the wall drawing, a humorous, deft, and Dickensian subject.



KON TRUBKOVICH 
Marianne Boesky Gallery

Kon Trubkovich
We have been following Trubkovich for a long time. These new paintings show more of the artist's hand. They're puzzling, with a beautiful use of color. We have another great one at the Deitch/Gagosian show in here in the Miami Design District.

 

STELLA HAMBURG
Eigen + Art

 Stella Hamburg

We love the aggressive nature of Hamberg's work. We have an outdoor sculpture of hers at our home in Monmouth Beach, New Jersey.

 

NADA

JPW3
Martos Gallery

JPW3

It took us a while to love his work, but now we are believers. His pieces have tended towards the digital, but these are far more painterly.


CHRIS HOOD 
Galerie Bernard Ceysson

Chris Hood

Hood paints from back of the canvas, so that the paint bleeds through to the other side. The painting we bought shows both tension and mystery.



LAUREN LULOFF
Galerie Bernard Ceysson 

Lauren Luloff

Luloff bleaches or paints the fabric, then sews the pieces together in a painterly fashion. She sometimes uses sheer fabric in her compositions.



BRIAN BELOTT
247365

Brian Belott

He's always pushing the envelope—every show he comes up with new concepts. Some of them are very whimsical.

 

LOUISA GAGLIARDI
Tomorrow Gallery

Louisa Gagliardi

Gagliardi is a very sensual Swiss artist whose work harkens back to Surrealism. This is the type of painting that is difficult to ignore. [Image via Tomorrow Gallery.]



WALTER PRICE
Karma

Walter Price

These works are small, very painterly gems that tell a twisted narrative. They're also new to us, which we love.

 

UNTITLED


RUSSELL TYLER
Denny Gallery

Russell Tyler

We loved how his minimalist paintings worked with his abstract paintings. The one on the left looks like things flying through the air.


LES ROGERS
Nora Makebish Gallery

Les Rogers

We have collected Rogers through the years, from his figurative paintings to the newer abstract ones. He has a great use of color.
