Lita Albuquerque, 'Solar Pulse (Absorption)'

Ships From: Laguna Beach , CA US

Description: Light and Space artist Lita Albuquerque (b. 1946) has been investigating our place in the universe through installations, environmental works, paintings, and sculpture throughout her critically acclaimed career. She emerged in the 1970s, a student of Robert IrwinÍs. In her early works, she marked the California desert with colored pigment, mapping both the earthly and celestial terrain, a practice she has since brought to sites worldwide. Among her best-known projects isæSol Staræ(1996), for which she marked the desert south of the Great Pyramids of Giza with blue circles, each one associated with a star. AlbuquerqueÍs work is centered upon scale, and our smallness in an infinite cosmos. ñI was interested in that impossibility of vision,î she explains, ñbeing able to perceive only what is around us, yet aware that [ƒ] what we are perceiving is only part of a much larger vision.î

Peter Alexander, '5/13/16 (Grey Box)'

Ships From: Laguna Beach , CA US

Description: Among the pioneering California-based Light and Space artists, Peter Alexander (b. 1939) has spent the course of his career focusing intensely on light and its manifold effects in his sculptures, paintings, drawings, and prints. From 1965-72, Alexander worked with resin, producing subtle, luminous, pastel-hued sculptures that seemed to be crafted from light itself. In the early 1970s, he turned to painting, drawing, and printmaking with an almost Impressionistic handling of light, suffusing the works with color and a palpable sense of atmosphere. AlexanderÍs two-dimensional works display a masterful handling of sun- and moonlight, city lights, illuminated water, and, in a charming series of drawings of midnight-black cats, the total absorption of light into velvety darkness.

Larry Bell, 'Untitled'

Ships From: Laguna Beach , CA US

Description: Larry Bell (b. 1939) is most commonly known for hisæMinimalistæsculptures„transparent cubes that thrive on the interplay of shape, light, and environment„ that champion the ideas of theæLight and Space Movementæof the 1960s. Although Bell had early success withæAbstract Expressionistæpainting, a side job at a frame shop led him to experiment with excess scraps of glass, thus beginning his fascination with the materialÍs interaction with light. BellÍs first series of cubes combined three-dimensional glass forms with transmitted light, creating illusions of perspective through angles, ellipses, and mirrors. His later purchase of industrial plating equipment allowed him to create sculptures with metallic-coated glass and, eventually, drawings on mylar-coated paper

Tony Delap, 'Zanadu'

Ships From: Laguna Beach , CA US

Description: Tony DeLap, a pioneer of West CoastæMinimalismæandæOp Art, has spent more than half a century producing meticulously crafted, illusionistic abstract sculptures that challenge perception with their teasing, shifting shapes, form, and sense of depth. Associated with the L.A.-based Finish Fetish movement of the 1960s, DeLap has mentored such prominent artists asæBruce NaumanæandæJames Turrell. Staying true to Minimalism decades after the height of its popularity, he defines the work of art as ña thing in itself.î Eschewing outside references, DeLap strips art to its essence: materials and form. These materials include wood, metal, and plastics, formed into geometric shapes and multipart structures filled with illusions of depth and formal relationships that are both playful and rigorous. DeLapÍs work was included in ñPrimary Structuresî (1966) and ñAmerican Sculpture of the Sixtiesî (1967), two exhibitions that helped to defineæMinimalism.

Joe Goode, 'Untitled'

Ships From: Laguna Beach , CA US

Description: Inspired by natural forces, Joe Goode seeks to convey the process of perception in his paintings. Along with artists likeæJames TurrellæandæRobert Irwin, Goode is associated withæLight and Space, a West Coast movement dedicated to exploring the experience of seeing that emerged in the early 1960s. In his paintings, Goode walks the line between abstraction and representation. He gives hints of recognizable forms and uses subtle gradations of color and visible brushstrokes to stimulate viewers to reconsider their own perceptual experiences.

Scot Heywood, 'Stack - Canvas, Black, Gray'

Ships From: Laguna Beach , CA US

Description: ñI painted flat from the get-go,î says Scot Heywood, who has explored abstraction throughout the course of his artistic career. His early influences included theæAbstract Expressionists, whose approach he would emulate in his own compositions. In the late 1970s, he fell in love with the paintings ofæPiet Mondrian; since then, he has been translating the austere philosophy of geometric abstraction into his own monochromatic works. Ranging in scale from intimate to encompassing, his paintings consist of multiple, colored canvases, connected in staggered, patchwork patterns. In a seemingly endless array of variations, he inserts thin strips between, or attaches them to the sides of, square and rectangular canvases, intentionally misaligning them to create delightfully disruptive, staccato visual rhythms. Heywood is interested in the relationship between wall, work, and viewer, and in the rich dialog between color and form.

John M. Miller, 'E003'

Ships From: Laguna Beach , CA US

Description: In the early 1970s, celebrated artist John M. Miller (b. 1939) abandoned figurative painting and stripped art down to its essence, which, for him, took the form of angled, colored bars repeated across the picture plane. He has been painting these bars„in shades of white, black, blue, violet, red, yellow, and green acrylic on unprimed canvases, ranging in scale from intimate to encompassing„for more than 40 years. Meticulous and meditative, his compositions have been variously categorized asæOp ArtæandæGeometric Abstraction, and compared to the works ofæAgnes MartinæandæBrice Marden. MillerÍs works require and reward viewersÍ slow attention, which allows the eye to perceive a sense of rhythmic movement in the interplay of the bars, and the mind to open to their various associations„to weaving, stitching, or a freshly raked Zen rock garden.

Ed Moses, 'Axe 6'

Ships From: Laguna Beach , CA US

Description: Considered one of the foremost postwar abstract painters in the Southern California scene, working alongside a generation of artists known as the ñcool school,î Ed Moses (b. 1926) has been engaged in what he sees as a continual process of discovery for more than half a century. As he describes, ñPainting is like discovery, trying this, trying that, bending this, twirling that, and then every once in a while it goes bing!î His compositions include Braque-inspired, semi-representational scenes; abstract, allover patterns;æcolor fields;æhard-edgedægeometric shapes; and, recently, what he calls his ñcrackle paintings,î whose cracked and layered surfaces resemble tree bark or parched ground. He was among the first generation of artists to be shown at L.A.Ís legendary Ferus Gallery in 1957, and his work continues to be exhibited worldwide. For Moses, however, success is secondary to the pleasure of painting itself.

Kasper Sonne, 'Borderline (New Territory)'

Ships From: Laguna Beach , CA US

Description: In his understated monochromatic paintings, sculptures, signs, and works on paper, Kasper Sonne investigates how we interpret our surroundings to make sense of the world. As he explains: ñThrough a continuous construction and deconstruction of meaning, I wish to explore how individual and cultural references influence the way we read the world around us.î SonneÍs series of manipulated advertisements exemplifies his methods of examining meaning. In these works, he blackens out everything but the name of the advertised product, such as Secret deodorant or Obsession perfume. By dissociating the word from the product it had been labeling, Sonne effectively divests it of the meaning imposed upon it by that product, leaving it up to viewers to make the word meaningful again through their own processes of interpretation and association.
