Peter’s Auction Pick of the Day: Helen Frankenthaler

“A really good picture looks as if it’s happened at once. It’s an immediate image…one really beautiful wrist motion that is synchronised with your head and heart, and you have it, and therefore it looks as if it were born in a minute.” –Helen Frankenthaler

Artist Spotlight: Maurice Utrillo

Maurice Utrillo made a splash in the Parisian art world at the tender age of 22. With the support of his mother, who was herself a painter and a frequent model for Renoir and Lautrec, Utrillo’s artistic identity sprung from the bohemian fodder of the Montmartre art scene at the turn of the twentieth century.

Just In: Jennifer Bartlett

November 1, 2018

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.

Artist Spotlight: Sergio Camargo

September 12, 2018

While creating a traditional mold of his hand, Camargo was taken by the range of possibilities that lay on the outside of the plaster cast where his fingers protruded. Though typically discarded, it was the external plaster that offered the “rhythm of contraction and expansion” that he had been searching for. While in Paris in 1961, Camargo began to associate with major figures from the Op art and kinetic art movements. During this period, in 1969, Camargo first discovered the method for his iconic monochromatic relief sculptures, such as Untitled (Relief No. 261) (1969).
