Contemporary art has the ability to reference our past, present and future ­– but ultimately, it always moves the dialogue forward. This collection of paintings, drawings and mixed media works from top established and emerging artists – much of which was executed in the last few years – includes highlights from Jonas Wood, Hugh Scott-Douglas, Luke Diiorio, Roe Ethridge, Michael Manning, Josh Smith, Sanya Kantarovsky, Ryan Estep and more.

“We feel things through our eyes more than we see them,” artist Andy Cross, whose Untitled Workout is featured in this auction, once told MoMA. “Seeing is a psychological experience. Therefore each new work is an experiment, in the language of paint, into the world of pictorial psychology.”

Each new work is an experiment in the language of paint.

ANDY CROSS, ARTIST
