Vicky Wright Guardians LVlll 2011 oil on panel 31.5" x 25.6"
Was in LA yesterday to visit friends and attend the LA Contemporary Art Fair.
I was under whelmed by the fair for the most part with the exception of the
Josh Lilley Gallery from London and the Kansas Gallery from NYC. Both showed
interesting painting that seemed fresh and interesting to me. Josh Lilley was
freaturing Vicky Wright's paintings on panel. These were the best paintings that
I saw during my walk through the 50 or so booths. Good UK painters seem
to have a grasp on contemporary painting that usually acknowledges their ante-
cedents while pushing boundaries. Wright certainly does.
