ART BLITZ Insider Picks

We asked a series of art insiders to choose five pieces from ART BLITZ...

 

 

 

Zavier Ellis, Director of CHARLIE SMITH london

 

 

'My choices are based on instinct as they always are. If I like it then I consider showing or buying it. I’m attracted to the raw expressive spirit of these artists and the combinations of image and text, which is a bit of an obsession of mine. I’m also prone to the themes they are investigating – the gothic, sex, mortality, the apocalyptic. At least this accounts for Joffe, O’Mahony, Vine and Lamb. As for Puntis, I’m a big fan and have two of her paintings. So I’ll take a blind punt on her without seeing the image. I think about her work often and wonder where she has got to – I’d like to see more of it around again.'
