Peter’s Auction Pick of the Day: Art with Text

February 28, 2017

Los Angeles Modern Auctions (LAMA)

Los Angeles Modern Auctions adopts a curated approach to every sale and there are a number of interesting themes in our March auction. One such group are works that employ text, by artists like Ed Ruscha, Jenny Holzer, Tracey Emin, Mary Kelly, and Raymond Pettibon. Whether it’s to communicate a message to the viewer, or to explore the aesthetic properties of language, these six works reveal the myriad ways in which the written word can be employed in visual art.
