Los Angeles Modern Auctions is pleased to offer two key lots by Tara Donovan at auction this October 11. The New York artist creates wondrous visual experiences, in large-scale installation and sculpture, from everyday objects. By stacking, piling, and densely arranging together hundreds of pieces of mundane materials like paper plates, plastic cups, or plastic straws, she renders surprisingly strange and beautiful results. They resemble great natural phenomena, such as nebulous clouds, or brittle landscapes. Nature and technology meet in Lot 236, Untitled (Paper Plates) (c. 2005), and Lot 237, Untitled (Bubble Drawing) (2003).
