Lot 1

Sol LeWitt
Wavy Brushstrokes
, 1994
Estimate:  7,000 - 9,000 USD

LeWitt's later works break free from the sequential indexes of form and geometry as most often found in the Minimalist's earlier work. The loose curvilinear brushstrokes of this piece exemplify this lively escape.

Lot 43
Packed Coast (Project for Australia near Sydney) Coast Line: Little Bay, 1969
Estimate:  40,000 - 60,000 USD

There are few instances in life when you know you are in the presence of greatness. Christo was one of those instances for me. When I first met him I was humbled by his exuberant interest in everything one would say to him, his engagement in conversation, and his vivaciously witty energy. Christo inspired me by demonstrating that persistence and confidence takes us places,  exemplified by his waiting twenty years to get the right paperwork for his The Gates project in Central Park. I have met few persons with a single stronger vision to create.

Lot 237
Rudolf Stingel
Instructions, 1989
Estimate: 18,000 - 22,000 USD

This silkscreen print most obviously raises questions of authorship and authenticity, but by doing so he democratizes his own artistic process, and forces the viewer to conceptualize the potential outcome of the work, rather than the finished canvas.

Lot 312

Marilyn Minter
Mardi Gras, 2007
Estimate: 15,000 - 20,000 USD

Voluptuous, excessive, sensual, mysterious - all themes that live and I love in Minter's work.
