Just In: A Seminal Watercolor by Shahzia Sikander

November 20, 2014

Los Angeles Modern Auctions (LAMA)

LAMA is pleased to announce that Pakistani-born, MacArthur Foundation “Genius Grant” recipient Shahzia Sikander’s 1997 watercolor Multiple Bearings will be included in the March 1, 2015 Modern Art & Design Auction. A wholly contemporary take on the ancient technique of Indo-Persian miniature painting, the work is richly layered with imagery and dense with symbols. Breaking with tradition and immigrating to the U.S. to attend RISD and show with Deitch Gallery in the 1990s, Sikander has proven to be one of the most vibrant and multifaceted talents in contemporary art.
