To review Anton Henning’s (b. 1964) body of work to date is like flipping through a modern art history reference book or walking through the contemporary wing of a museum. With a penchant for pastiche, Henning’s hand at times resembles the cubism of Pablo Picasso, the wry humor of Marcel Duchamp, or the phantasmagoria of the Surrealists. The artist explains: “I don’t like being pinned down. […] I challenge myself to contradict myself.” LAMA is pleased to offer two works from Henning’s varied and prolific body of work in the October 12, 2014 Modern Art & Design Auction.
