Exhibitions & Literature: featured & catalogued in the 2019 exhibition, ‘Sonic Albers’; David Zwirner Gallery, New York, NY. Art & Vinyl (Franekel Gallery 2018). About Josef Albers Josef Albers is best known for his seminal “Homage to the Square” series of the 1950s and '60s, which focused on the simplification of form and the interplay of shape and color. His abstract canvases employed rigid geometric compositions in order to emphasize the optical effects set off by his chosen color palettes. Albers was highly influential as a teacher, first at the Bauhaus in Germany alongside Wassily Kandinsky and Paul Klee, and later with posts at Black Mountain College, Yale, and Harvard; he taught courses in design and color theory, and counted among his students such iconic artists as Eva Hesse, Richard Anuszkiewicz, Robert Rauschenberg & Cy Twombly. Albers is often cited among the forefathers of Minimalist, Conceptual, and Op art.

  • KAWS Companion 2016 (Brown KAWS Companion)
    By KAWS
    Located in NEW YORK, NY
    KAWS Brown Companion, 2016. New and sealed in its original packaging. This classic KAWS figurative sculpture was published by Medicom Japan in conjunction with the exhibition, KAWS: Where The End Starts at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth. New/never displayed & accompanied by original packaging. Medium: Painted Vinyl Cast Resin. Year: 2016. Dimensions: 11 × 5 inches. New, unopened; excellent condition. Stamped on underside of foot; from a sold out edition of unknown. KAWS: Spanning the worlds of graffiti, pop art, and consumer culture, KAWS’ bodies of work are highly charged, each conveying his underlying wit, irreverence, and affection for our times. He has primarily looked to and appropriated from pop-culture animations (including The Smurfs, The Simpsons, SpongeBob, and Peanuts) to form his artistic vocabulary for his paintings, drawings, and sculptures. Now well known for his larger-than-life sculptures and hard-edge paintings that emphasize line and color, KAWS’s cast of hybrid cartoon/human characters, with similarities to popular cartoon figures and logos like Mickey Mouse and the Michelin Man, are perhaps the strongest examples of his exploration of humanity. These figures have amicable names—Chum, Companion, Accomplice—and express and provoke an array of human emotions, from sad, overwhelmed, pathetic, and weary, to shy. They reflect feelings and situations we can empathize with in presentations that are balanced with humor, heartening in their cartoon aesthetic. (source: The Modern Fort Worth).
