20 | 21 Art features an exciting and curated selection of works across a variety of mediums from some of the most interesting and important artists of the 20th and 21st centuries. This sale features collages by Ray Johnson and Christo, paintings by Miyoko Ito and Ilya Bolotowsky, and sculptures by Peter Alexander and Lynda Benglis, as well as works by contemporary artists including KAWS, Barry McGee and Guy Yanai.
Artist Peter Alexander has long been associated with Southern California's Light and Space movement. He rose to prominence in the 1960s alongside artists such as Donald Judd and Larry Bell, exploring the fundamentals of color and form unto themselves to produce sculptures of lasting substance that have a composed, joyful presence. Alexander's cast resin and urethane boxes, bars and wedges were spectacularly dense in color, pristine in their surfaces and enthralling to behold. Much of his sense of light and space was inspired by surfing and the colors and qualities of the ocean, sky and shore. This auction features three recent works by Alexander.
I'm a romantic. I believe in the value of things. I believe that objects can be made that can have an extraordinary effect on me and others.
