The glossy delicacy of Untitled consists of oxidized copper tubes twisted, overlapped and intertwined as if it were a cage used to protect the fragile, blown glass forms intertwined within the round structure. Copper is solid but flexible, while glass is translucent, reflective, and scatters light that illuminates it with cascading color sweeps, making the object shine. There is hope in Falkenstein's sculpture because the sphere has sharp edges but remains solid and grounded. – Erika Barrish OLAFUR ELİASSON Today leans towards tomorrow, yesterday leans towards today 2023 Laminated silver glass , composite board, aluminum 40.55" x 126.38" x 1.38" 250-500 thousand dollars Presented by Tanya Bonakdar Olafur Eliasson, From today to tomorrow, from yesterday to today, 2023, Laminated silver-colored glass , composite plate, aluminum, 103 cm x 321 cm x 3,5 cm. Courtesy of the artist and Tanya Bonakdar A prime example of art giant Olafur Eliasson's work, the hand-blown glass piece plays with the visual ambiguity inherent in the ellipse. the shape is unstable; it may appear as a two-dimensional or circular disk when viewed from perspective. Here Eliasson conveys a great sense of movement by gradually rotating the ellipse on its side as if it were rolling through space. Ripples and bubbles are scattered on the glass plates, the reflective surface reflects the viewer - signs of movement and life. The prismatic array of hues connect and overlap, showing the artist's interest in the themes of color, transparency, and layering. The work that starts and ends in yellow tones draws a full circle, implying the title of the works, Today leans towards tomorrow, yesterday leans towards today. – Laura Solomon TRACEY SURE I needed you to love me, 2023 acrylic on canvas 79.92" x 110.24" $1 million or more Presented by White Cube Tracey Emin, "I needed you to love me", 2023 Tracey Emin. All rights reserved, DACS 2023. Photo Ollie Harrop There is something about romantic longing in Tracey Emin's paintings that take the viewer beyond the erotic to evoke a kind of history of female sexuality in art. These works feel quite special, but I see the universality of the depiction of nude women in them. I love their subtlety, their palette, and the way they talk about the long-lasting power of women's bodies in art. – Lisa Austin SUSAN FREKON soils and plums, 2023 Oil on flax 107.99" x 87.52" x 1.5" Application Price Presented by David Zwirner Suzan Frecon, earth and plum, 2022, Courtesy of Suzan Frecon, Artist and David Zwirner. Suzan Frecon's monumental 2-piece painting shows an artist who for over fifty years has developed a distinctive language of abstraction with a minimalist bent. A formal arrangement of color and form where the pointed ellipses in this painting also appear as arches or a doorway to an immersive world. The dark color in earth and jewel tones reaches the tactile painting surface with forms ranging from matte to glossy by grinding the artist's own pigments and applying different techniques. The collector, who takes it home, will experience the pleasure of living with such a rich painting that changes under different light conditions and emerges as the sunlight moves across the sky. – Lisa Marie Marks THEATER DOORS Wings I, 2022 old growth pine 47-12 x 212-1516 x 2-34 inches Application Price Presented by White Cube Theater Door, Wings I, 2022, Old pine, 120.7 x 540.8 x 7 cm. Courtesy of the artist and White Cube Community is at the core of Theater Gate's work. Its myriad forms and modes of distribution always feel coherent – ​​community, presence, action, hope – and the mural presented here is no different. The wood in Wings I is from the original 1880 Drill Hall floor of the Park Avenue Armory in New York, which Gates helped renovate during his 2018 residency. The old pine carries a symbolic reference when reused by the artist. Paying homage to Frank Stella, Gates mimics the repetitive shapes and compositions that occupied many of his early paintings. This is a key piece of work included in the artist's first survey exhibition, Young Lords and Their Traces, at the New Museum, which ended earlier in 2023. – Lela Hersh WILLIAM KENTRIDGE Drawing for Self-Portrait as a Coffee Pot , 2020 Charcoal, pastel and red pencil on paper 50.39" x 59.84" $600,000 Presented by the Goodman Gallery William Kentridge, Drawing for Self-Portrait as a Coffee Pot , 2020, Charcoal, pastel and red pencil on paper, 128 x 152 cm, Courtesy of the Artist and Goodman Gallery William Kentridge is an artistic scholar who is admired internationally for his drawings, theatre, opera productions and films. His work is in the collections of many of the world's top museums, and he has lectured at renowned universities around the world. In addition to his major exhibition at The Broad in Los Angeles last winter, I had the opportunity to see his final survey exhibition at the Royal Academy in London this fall. I have admired his work since I first came across it at the Venice Biennale in 1993. Drawing for Self-Portrait as a Coffee Pot is part of the artist's latest series on life in his studio – a perspective he invites the viewer to share. Kentridge is also known for supporting the creative community in Johannesburg through the arts centre, writing, collaborations and ambitious projects around the world. Its application has its roots in his drawings and it would be a privilege to have one. – Lorinda Ash THADDEUS MOSLEY Pipe Condition, 2017 4 pieces walnuts 62.5" x 38.5" x 21" 250-500 thousand dollars Offered by Karma Thaddeus Mosley, Tubular State, 2017, 4 pieces walnut, 158.75 cm x 97.79 cm x 53.34 cm. Courtesy of the artist and Karma Thaddeus Mosley lives with each locally sourced piece of wood before carving the organic material to create an impromptu sculpture. "The log and I are deciding together what it will become," the artist said in an interview in 2017. His work, Tubular State, consists of a single vertical arm that supports two horizontal logs, one of which rests effortlessly on top of the other. A symbol of the monumental grace that the artist is blessed with, the work demonstrates a deep affinity and an extraordinary mastery of living material. You can only imagine entering a forest and being in such gravitational balance, but Mosley reminds us of the beauty that is possible when we cooperate with nature, not against it. – Jeremy JohnstonDarling Green JACK WHITE Black Hands, 2015 Sumi ink, rice paper, acrylic on canvas 97.36" x 39.65" 500 thousand-1 million dollars Presented by Hauser & Wirth Jack Whitten, Black Hands, 2015, Sumi ink, rice paper, acrylic on canvas, 247.3 cm x 100.7 cm. Courtesy of artist Hauser & Wirth Legendary artist Jack Whitten's work Black Hands feels extraordinarily personal and instantaneous. Whitten created a strong sense of tension and emotion by covering rice paper with black ink prints of her own hands. The painting probably offers a lot of strong reading on the history of Black Americans, as their handprints refer to the exploitation of their labor. Created later in her career in 2015, this book reflects Whitten's lifelong exploration of new techniques and ways to express ideas and feelings through her work. ~ Laura Smith Sweeney Thanks to A members Lorinda Ash, Lisa Austin, Erica Barrish, Elizabeth Fiore, Alex Glauber, Lela Hersh, Jeremy JohnstonDarling Green, Lisa Marie Marks, Laura Smith Sweeney, and Laura Solomon.
