Sculptor Lloyd Hamrol came of age in the vibrant, freewheeling, and highly charged art world of Los Angeles in the 1960s, as the city established itself a major center of contemporary art. Hamrol made a name for himself as a creator of conceptual installations with his studio-based work. In 1965 he was presented with the New Talent Purchase Award by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and was subsequently featured in the museum’s exhibition Five Younger Los Angeles Artists. Green Piece (One Up One Down) (c. 1969) is on the market for the first time, from a private collector who acquired the work directly from the artist, in March 1, 2015 Modern Art & Design Auction!
