i have been to frieze modern a few times, but went to frieze masters yesterday for the first time with a friend – not only is it less than 10 minutes walk from my house, but it is a much calmer and serene atmosphere. its astonishing that you can erect a big tent next to a kids park and fill it with works that cost thousands of pounds – only in my wildest dreams can i imagine that on my way to picking up a pint of milk i can divert to frieze masters and come home with a picasso drawing or a hepworth sculpture! the admission to the fair is pricey, but if you want to see up close a great selection of artworks from the last century including photos and sculptures then its worth it. whilst i was in there, maude’s art teacher called me to ask whether she had permission to allow the girls to visit frieze modern as they had been given free tickets – what a wonderful opportunity that schools are given free tickets – i really do feel that these events should be more affordable or even offer subsidised family tickets.
i have re enrolled onto the life drawing class at the working mens college – its quite challenging having to do sketches in 5 mins, but its good practise and maybe one day………..
