Perhaps best known for her monumental work “Rhapsody” (1975-1976), Jennifer Bartlett has explored the foundations of the painting medium for over forty years. As a young artist, Bartlett was impressed by Sol LeWitt’s 1967 essay “Paragraphs on Conceptual Art,” and became fascinated with artistic applications of Chaos Theory. Despite being one of the most commercially successful female artists of the 1970s, Bartlett has long been overlooked. LAMA is pleased to be offering to the public for auction this important work by Bartlett in the November 18, 2018 Auction from the Collection of Gerard L. Cafesjian.

From the time she was young girl, Lisa Yuskavage understood paintings as portals. “The work carries markers of the artist’s inner life,” she says, “art is a seance.” Yuskavage maintains a highly sophisticated notion of the art experience and imbues her practice with great philosophical depth, something Jarret Earnest refers to as her sincere “belief in art.”

A native Californian, pioneering artist Ruth Asawa (1926 – 2013) began creating art while detained in Japanese-American internment camps. Born to Japanese immigrants in Norwalk, California, Asawa was no stranger to hard work and the large body of sculptures, public installations, and drawings that she created over the course of her career are testament to her work ethic. LAMA is pleased to offer an Asawa sculpture in the June 10, 2018 Modern Art & Design auction.
