By PAUL LASTER, Nov. 2017

Perusing the offerings at Artissima, we have filled our shopping cart with fascinating works of contemporary art in a variety of media. The 24th edition of the Italy’s most prestigious art fair, which takes place at the Oval in Torino through November 5th, features 206 galleries from 31 countries. 

Highlights include solo presentations of Marion Baruch’s domestic abstractions at Geneva’s Galerie Laurence Bernard, Eliza Douglas’ mix of body parts and everyday objects with planes of color and expressive brushstrokes in canvases that blur the boundary between abstraction and figuration at Air de Paris, Salvatore Arancio’s intriguingly altered illustrations of crystals and ceramic sculptures at Milan’s Federica Schiavo Gallery, Jorge Ferré quirky abstractions on wood at Barcelona’s Galeria Senda and Camilo Restrepo poster-like portrayals referencing Colombian drug wars at Steve Turner, from Los Angeles. 

Scroll through the images below to see some of the works that we want to have hanging on our walls. WM
