Captivating Works on Paper
This season’s Contemporary ArtLondon auction offers a fantastic selection of quality works on paper, not only from key emerging talents but also from some of the most sought after established artists. Throughout art history, works on paper have offered a terrific insight into artists’ working processes. Time and time again we have seen the giants of art history produce wonderfully esoteric and insightful works on paper as a key cornerstone of their practice. From Tracey Emins monotype, to Brice Marden’s ink on paper and Paulina Olowska’s collage, each work offers a unique and unrivaled sense of intimacy and showcases the experimental practices that lie at the heart of these artists' oeuvres.
Pioneering Women Artists
There is a strong presence of works by trailblazing female artists in this season’s Contemporary ArtLondon Auction. Recent years have seen a much needed reckoning with previously undervalued importance of women artists. From Cecily Brown’s sensual and wonderfully tactile monotype, to Jenny Holzer’s radical and uncompromising text work and Makiko Kudo’s monumental whimsical canvas, these works testify to the diversity in practices of women artists and the enduring importance of their works.
