It has always been a mission of Los Angeles Modern Auctions to foster the market of artists from Southern California. In the October 11 auction we are pleased to present an array of luminous artwork from LA-based Light and Space artists. The sunlight, sunsets, and atmosphere of the area inspired a number of artists starting in the sixties and seventies. They incorporate sensory phenomena in their work by altering natural light, or using artificial light, or creating with translucent, transparent or reflective materials. In a way, you can say that as artists they’re throwbacks to an earlier time. Such artists are sensitive to subtle changes in the air and shifts in the quality of light–its mutability as it is reflected or refracted, and passes through material. On offer will be outstanding lots by Peter Alexander, Mary Corse, John McCracken, and De Wain Valentine.
