Artist Spotlight: Mary Corse
Having been exposed to the works of Josef Albers and Hans Hoffman at a young age, Mary Corse became fascinated with their ability to coax out the viewer’s recognition of their own perception. She recalls tracing their fundamental shapes over and over, marveling at the ways in which her visual interaction with the forms could animate and transform them. Read more about Mary Corse and the three artworks in the February 17, 2019 Modern Art & Design Auction.

Los Angeles Modern Auctions is delighted to announce an exciting addition to our upcoming Spring 2016 auction of Modern Art & Design. Untitled (Black/Blue Bands) is an abstract painting from the year 2000 by the California-based artist Mary Corse, constructed with Corse’s signature material: glass microspheres suspended in acrylic paint. Producing a startling perceptual effect, these minute beads cause the bands of white and color in her paintings to seemingly shimmer and shift above pulsing, morphing surfaces. As The New Yorker magazine put it, Corse’s “works suggest tapestries woven from stars.”
