Artist Spotlight: John Ferren

September 20, 2018

John Ferren quickly established himself as leading voice amongst New York Abstract Expressionists. In 1955 he served as president of The Club, an organization comprised of some of the leading Abstract Expressionist artists of the day. Disregarding the restraints of post-war painting’s common stylistic adherence, Ferren’s works remained “eclectic and wide ranging.” LAMA will be offering six works by Ferren in the September 30, 2018 Modern Art and Design Auction including “Source Fiesta” (1949), “Untitled” (1960), and his collection of four drawings which all provide a small sample of the vast diversity in Ferren’s repertoire.

Peter’s Auction Pick of the Day: Ruth Asawa

June 5, 2018

Los Angeles Modern Auctions (LAMA), June 10, 2018 Modern Art Design Auction

A native Californian, pioneering artist Ruth Asawa (1926 – 2013) began creating art while detained in Japanese-American internment camps. Born to Japanese immigrants in Norwalk, California, Asawa was no stranger to hard work and the large body of sculptures, public installations, and drawings that she created over the course of her career are testament to her work ethic. LAMA is pleased to offer an Asawa sculpture in the June 10, 2018 Modern Art & Design auction.
