September 13 – 17, 2017

Booth 2.6

Metropolitan Pavillion
125 West 18th Street
(between 6th and 7th Avenues)
Chelsea, New York


Our bags are unpacked, and the work is hung and ready for the autumn edition of the Affordable Art Fair! I have a spectacular booth this year, with new work  by Kristin Sjaarda (see above), Becky Comber and newcomer Heidi Conrod – a painter from Canada who I am thrilled to be working with for the first time. Keep your eye on my Instagram account for stories and a look at what’s going on!


I have a limited number of free general admission tickets to give away. Please reply to this message, or send an email to, to claim a pair. The fair runs from September 13th – 17th at the Metropolitan Pavilion, 125 W. 18th Street in Chelsea. Look for us on the second floor, booth 2.6.


1. Absolutely stunning new work by Becky Comber. She has created a small selection of one-of-a-kind, hand-cut photographs as part of a current series called Her Space. The pre-cut image is a composite of 7-8 photographs that have been stitched together; a document of the various flora and fauna Becky collects during her daily walk through the forest on her land in Southern Ontario. The piece I have in New York was actually photographed in Rankin Inlet, Nunavut. I thought it looked almost tropical, but they’re actually small plants collected from the arctic tundra. The shadow play on this work is incredible.

2. Kristin Sjaarda’s work was the buzz of the booth last year (and the year before that). This year will be a show stopper, with 3 large-scale new photos taking up an entire 12′ wall. Her work is luscious, grounded and handsome in a wonderfully, powerful, feminine way. Very excited about this. More images available upon request.

3. Paintings! I’m showing the work of Canadian painter Heidi Conrod for the first time. I love Heidi’s work, and apparently, I’m not the only one (her work is on a wait list of clients from across North America). I’m honoured to be working with this artist. There’s something special about this work; honest, gestural, with just the right dose of everything. I’ll be showing one large 48×60″ painting, alongside a series of seriously beautiful, floating layered plexiglass shadowboxes. Each one-of-a-kind box, contains 5 layers of painted plexiglass and measures 16.5×20.5″ each. Plans are underway to make these on a much larger scale. Come see them in person at the fair, or send me a message if you details and jpgs!

PLEASE NOTE: most of these works I dedicate to the art fairs will not be released online in wider editions. Are you from out of town or can’t make it to the fair? Not to worry. Send me a note if you would like jpgs and more detail about the work. I can even create a mock up of artwork on your wall if you send me a snapshot of your space.

See you in New York, and thank you for being here!
