June 6, 2018

Los Angeles Modern Auctions (LAMA)

Lot 64, Ronald Davis, Double Sawtooth, 1970

California artist Ronald Davis explores geometric shapes and visual perspective using techniques and materials borrowed from the state’s aerospace and plastics industries. His colorful resin and fiberglass sculptures combine elements of minimalism and Pop art. Says the artist: “Illusion is my vehicle. Opticality is paramount.” For the first time Double Sawtooth (1970) and Notch Rectangle XIV (1971) go to auction, on March 1.
