Rauschenberg

Artist Spotlight: William S. Burroughs

May 24, 2018

Los Angeles Modern Auctions (LAMA)

Primarily known for his sensational novels and loose, albeit reluctant association with the Beat Generation, American writer William S. Burroughs was also an accomplished visual artist who produced a large body of innovative work over the course of his long career. In his capacity as an artist, Burroughs collaborated on a number of important projects with artists of a diverse range of styles, including Keith Haring, George Condo, and Robert Rauschenberg. Burroughs’ devil-may-care paintings, spoken-word performances, and multi-media collaborations have been just as wildly influential as his equally audacious writings, and continue to impact a wide range of artists working in different media to this day.

Just In: ‘Pull (from Hoarfrost Editions)’ by Robert Rauschenberg

December 20, 2017

Los Angeles Modern Auctions (LAMA)

Robert Rauschenberg had a soft spot for works and processes that embraced the ephemeral, both conceptually and in practice. Like each of the works in the Hoarfrostseries, ‘Pull (from Hoarfrost Editions),’ which LAMA is delighted to include in the February 25, 2018 Modern Art & Design Auction, explores themes of an elusive, fleeting nature. The translucent, gauzy layers of delicate, gossamer-like cloth and the barely legible, yet not entirely unrecognizable imagery of this piece all point to themes of transience and transcendence.
