Raymond Pettibon, The Smell of Burning Rubber... (1989) May 22, 2016 Modern Art & Design Auction

Los Angeles Modern Auctions’ May 22, 2016 Modern Art & Design Auction will feature The Smell of Burning Rubber…, a 1989 ink on paper composition by Raymond Pettibon. A classic Pettibon marriage of image and text, it is a superb example of his work: fiery yet philosophical; deeply personal and yet iconographic. With a new major exhibition of works by Pettibon currently open at the Deichtorhallen Hamburg, the “bits and pieces” of American culture that Pettibon is known to incorporate into his art are shown to have a far-reaching and indelible impact on culture worldwide.

Lot 122, Jim Shaw Objects of Desire 1989

The art of Jim Shaw (b. 1952) is distilled from the flotsam and jetsam of a quintessential boyhood, the ephemera of American pop, social, and consumer culture. Los Angeles Modern Auctions is pleased to present two works on paper by Shaw in the upcoming March 1, 2015 Modern Art & Design Auction.
