I love the idea of tiny paintings like these ones done by the artist Amy Bennett .
Do you know when you lay your eyes on something and think that it is made out of a specific material, but then, you look closer and realize it is not?
In fact, it was just an optical illusion, your imagination or the talent of some artists tricking you into seeing something that is not quite what it seems.
These works are a great example of that.
Below, there is a compilation of some diverse and interesting paintings that I saw at Frieze Art Fair last month. These paintings have incorporated multiple other materials besides ink, including clothes, pure pigment, studs, glitter, loam, wool, embroidery, ultra-chrome on aluminum, Plexiglas, polystyrene, thread, plaster and glue, etc.
