‘Refreshing and Mighty’: Cecilia Alemani’s Top Choices for Frieze New York 2021

Blair Saxon-Hill, Kiki de Montparnasse 
Presented by Nino Mier Gallery

The first time I saw these works I was reminded of Italian artist Enrico Baj, who like Blair, loved to combine scraps of fabrics, trimmings and found objects to compose seemingly grotesque portraits. In this presentation at Frieze, Saxon-Hill brings a cohort of formidable portraits, alternating large canvases with modest collages. Take a close look to appreciate all the details of the surface!
