Market Art + Design by Art Market Productions, the East End’s premier modern and contemporary art fair, returned to Bridgehampton for its 7th year. The Art Fair was set just off Montauk Highway at the The Bridgehampton Museum, New York.
The Cynthia Corbett Gallery exhibited in Booth 509 and presented work by Young Masters Alumni Lluis Barba, finalist of the 2009 edition, and Zemer Peled, Highly Commended for the inaugural Young Masters Maylis Grand Ceramics Prize in 2014. Their work was exhibited alongside art by Gallery Artists Deborah Azzopardi, Andy Burgess, Tom Leighton, Mary O’Malley and Klari Reis.
The display featured a special focus on pop artist Deborah Azzopardi. While her colours serve as the initial bait to gain the viewer’s attention, it is her subject matter that hooks you and keeps you captivated. In “Saturday Night” 2004, lipstick is seductively applied, while elsewhere toned bodies remove items of clothing and long female legs dangle from a red convertible. These works are provocatively flirtatious, highlighted by playful titles such as “Beach Party” and “Happy Birthday”. Millions of people across the world are familiar with her artworks, her works have been published internationally and there is an incredible demand for her Original Paintings.
The unique synthesis of biology and creativity was on offer in Klari Reis’ installation work of hand painted, wall mounted Petri dishes. Also on view were the clear lines, bold geometric design and dynamic forms of buildings painted by Andy Burgess.
To coincide with Tate Britain’s exhibition of one of the most popular and influential British artists of the twentieth century, The Cynthia Corbett Gallery also offered visitors ‘David Hockney. A Bigger Book’.
Israeli ceramicist Zemer Peled is the first ever Fondation Bernardaud, Limoges Porcelain, Artist in Residence. Peled is currently participating in C’est le bouquet!, a group exhibition which features 17 international ceramicists whose creations are inspired by floral themes. The exhibition runs 23 June 2017 – 24 February 2018.
