Just In: Early and Rare Tony Berlant House

November 10, 2015

TonyBerlant-1-1

Los Angeles Modern Auctions is pleased to offer a rare early piece by L.A.’s own Tony Berlant. Berlant has been creating vivid metal collages since the early sixties. He cuts up and hammers with steel brads either found material or new tin into three-dimensional objects and reliefs; assemblages with riotous, “kinky” colors. The collaged surfaces are tactile, patterned like “armored quilts,” and have an artisanal, handcrafted look. He revels in the resulting piecemeal quality, and says, “A lot of what I like about it is . . . the physical labor and activity.”
