In addition to the Australian-based artists being presented by Sydney gallerist Roslyn Oxley at Frieze New York 2013, two other artists with Australian connections will also be exhibited at the fair by international galleries.

Berlin gallery Croy Nielson will present a solo show of work by Sydney-born Vienna-based artist Andy Boot in Frieze Frame, a section of the fair introduced in 2009 dedicated to solo artist presentations.

According to Croy Nielson, Boot is engaged in an “ongoing investigation of different zones or planes integral to the organization of an image: Andy Boot asks, all but rhetorically, not to mention paradoxically, if it is possible to make an image that is not an image. Indeed, what constitutes an image now that we live in the labyrinth of images?”

Renee So was born in Hong Kong, raised in Australia, and has lived in London since 2005. Best known for her knitted portraits and ceramic busts, So will have her work exhibited in the Focus section of the fair by London’s Kate MacGarry gallery. Opened in or after 2002, Focus galleries debut works not previously seen within an art fair context.

Frieze New York is an international contemporary art fair that launched in May 2012. In 2013 the fair includes over 180 of the world’s leading galleries, making Frieze New York 2013 the company’s largest event to date.
