Exploring Frieze Sculpture
I love taking inspiration for my interior design from art. Combining sculpture with the beautiful surroundings of London’s Regents Park, The Frieze Sculpture Park is a winner. It coincides with the mammoth Frieze Art Fair and Frieze Masters. This year it was once again curated by Claire Lilley from Yorkshire Sculpture Park. She selected contemporary sculptures alongside historical pieces, with new works by both established and emerging artists represented by Frieze London and Frieze Masters exhibitors. Participating artists included Caroline Achaintre, Reza Aramesh, Michael Craig-Martin, Martin Creed, Gabriele De Santis, KAWS , Yayoi Kusama, Seung-taek Lee, Roelof Louw, Ursula von Rydingsvard, Thomas Schütte and Franz West.
It’s a great way to experience a broad range of sculptures in a beautiful parkland setting – like a miniature Yorkshire Sculpture Park! Unlike its Frieze siblings, the Frieze Sculpture Park is free.
One of the delights is seeing how people interact with the pieces..

Stunning autumn colours on this tree almost obscure a recreation of Roelof Louw’s work of 300 randomly distributed wooden slats originally created in Holland Park in 1967.

The squirrel was rather more interested in foraging than discovering artworks
Strangely, children weren’t all that interested in the baby dinosaur made to look like a toy puzzle..
But they loved Martin Creed’s film
Live action, mime, bottom. What’s not to like?
