Inspired by the Dada movement, Arman (born Armand Pierre Fernandez) created unconventional sculptures made from accumulated trash. In the mid–20th century, he began exhibiting random assortments of garbage displayed in glass boxes, which he dubbed “Poubelles” (“trash cans”). He also introduced his “Accumulations”—assemblages of multiple iterations of the same object, which ranged from toy cars and paint tubes to retainers and faucets. Arman often adopted destruction as a strategy for creation: He sliced, burned, and smashed objects such as bronze statues and musical instruments, then mounted fragments on canvas, encased them in plexiglass, or presented them alone. In the 1960s, he was associated with Nouveau Réalisme—a European movement founded in response to American Pop art—along with close friend and fellow artist Yves Klein. Arman exhibited extensively throughout his lifetime and received numerous awards. His work has sold for six figures at auction and belongs in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, the Tate, the Stedelijk Museum, and the Tel Aviv Museum of Art, among other institutions.

  • Helmut Newton, 1994, Poster, Exhibition at the Castello di Rivoli
    By Helmut Newton
    Located in Milano, IT
    Helmut Newton poster 60 x 79.5 cm printed on the occasion of the Exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art Castello di Rivoli from September 24 to November 20, 1994 in excellent condition. The photo in question is a shot taken by the author in Paris in 1978 for Vogue France. The Poster has some light moisture marks readable only on the back. Helmut Newton (tedesco, 1920-2004) è considerato uno dei grandi maestri della fotografia del tardo Novecento, il cui stile fotografico è ancora visto come provocatorio e ampiamente capace di sfidare la comprensione del desiderio e della sessualità femminile. Nato a Berlino da una famiglia ebrea, dopo essere stato apprendista di Yva, lasciò il Paese nel 1938. Dopo essere stato a Singapore e in Australia, dove conobbe la moglie e compagna di una vita June, tornò in Europa solo negli anni Sessanta, dove nel 1961 iniziò una fortunata carriera di fotografo di moda a Parigi. Come fotografo di moda, ha collaborato con importanti riviste come French Vogue, Harper Bazaar, Playboy, Elle Queen, GQ, Marie-Claire. Nel corso della sua carriera ha lavorato per Chanel, Gianni Versace, Yves Saint Laurent e ha fotografato molte personalità dello spettacolo, della cultura, della politica e del cinema come Ava Gardner, Charlotte Rampling, Catherine Deneuve, Romy Schneider , Raquel Welch, Sigourney Weaver, Margaret Thatcher, Helmut Kohl, Jean-Marie Le Pen, Rainer Werner Fassbinder e Wim Wenders. Definito il "Re del Kink" dal Time Magazine, ha pubblicato diversi libri del suo lavoro come White Women (1976), Big Nudes (1981) e World Without Men (1984): grazie al contributo della moglie June, ha spinto oltre i confini della sua visione, in cui il nudo femminile...

  • Brown Cottonwood
    Located in Missouri, MO
    Brown Cottonwood, 2005 By Andrew Millner (American, b. 1967) Lightjet Print Mounted on UV Plex Signed Lower Right Unframed: 87" x 44" Framed: 88" x 45" Andrew Millner is a visual artist based in St. Louis, MO. His work investigates the relationship between art and nature, the natural and the made. Millner received a BFA from University of Michigan, in Painting and Sculpture. He has had more than 56 group exhibitions since 1987 and over 15 solo exhibitions at institutions including Miller Yezerski Gallery, Boston, Massachusetts; Ellen Miller Gallery, Boston, Massachusetts; CCA, Santa Fe, New Mexico; Tria Gallery, New York City, New York; Richard Levy Gallery, Albuquerque, New Mexico; David Floria Gallery, Aspen, Colorado; Contemporary Museum St. Louis, St. Louis, Missouri. "I started drawing on the computer in 2005. Previous to that, most of my work had been about finding lines in nature; the contours of leaves, the ripples on rivers, the edges of overlapping hills. Although I was using traditional art materials, I prepared the canvases with slicker and slicker surfaces so that the lines wouldn’t soak into the background but sit on top, preserving the nuances of my hand. I thought of the drawings as photographic, in the diaristic sense of recording moments of time. I enjoyed the easy correspondence of the endless novelty of line in these natural forms and the endless variety of line created by my hand. I couldn’t draw the same leaf twice so my subject and process were well matched. I had the idea to draw every leaf of a tree, but I struggled with the scale and complexity of the subject. How does one bring a tree indoors? How can one see the whole tree and its individual parts simultaneously? I tried traditional strategies and materials but the results were unsatisfactory. I wondered if it would be possible to make the drawing on a computer. Since everything… music, photos, movies & books were being digitized, what about drawing? I wasn’t interested in something computer-generated, but sought to “dumb down” the computer and use it as a repository for simple line drawings. In the program I use, Adobe Illustrator, lines are called “paths”… an apt name since the line exists at no set scale or color. Only later do I assign the attributes of color and thickness. Taking my laptop outdoors, I drew my first tree “en plein air.” Using a digital tablet and pen, I drew simple contours of the leaves and branches. Having these drawings remain in digital form rather than in physical form, opened up interesting possibilities and enabled me to tackle the complexity of a tree in intriguing ways. My lines were free and separate from the background and from each other. I drew the branches individually and then later, I could cobble them together to reconstitute the whole tree. On the screen, I could zoom in and out and draw at different scales simultaneously. I could zoom out to draw a simple contour of the entire trunk and then zoom in to draw the smallest leaf with equal effort. I drew in layers so that as the drawings accumulated I could turn layers “off” so that they wouldn’t obscure subsequent layers. These two novelties, drawing at different scales simultaneously and making parts of the drawing invisible to allow for work on top or behind previous drawings, allowed for the accumulation of hundreds of simple outlines to create a dizzying visual complexity. Subsequent trees I drew from photographs. I would take hundreds of close-ups of a tree from a single point of view and then stitch all of these close ups together on the computer. Sometimes I photographed the same tree in the summer and then in the fall after it lost its leaves. This allowed me to see and draw all of the branches and limbs unadorned and unobscured. I would draw the tree twice, with and without leaves, merging the two drawings into one document. In this way, the drawings comprise and compress great spans of looking over vast time frames and seemingly contradictory close-up and distant points of view. My digital drawings have been outputted in different ways… mostly as photographs printed directly from the digital file or as archival inkjet prints. The results defy easy categorization. Are they drawings, prints, or camera-less photographs...
