On 4 floors I saw an impressive selection which should hit the market on may 14th (auctions). As usual on this blog I show here just my favorites, a very subjective collection.Let the pictures speak for themselves:
On top of this post you can see Urs Fischer`s scultpture "Untiled (Candle)" (wax, wick, pigment, bricks;This work is number 2 from an editon of 3 plus 1 artist´s proof). As you can see below they put burning candles into the art work.
In the background hangs Rudolf Stingel´s "Untitled" (2012, electroformed copper, plated nickel and gold, in 4 parts).
Above another favorite of mine: Anselm Kiefer with "San Loretto" (2009). Usually the master uses materials like ashes, poppy corn seed and more. But here conted with plain "oil on canvas" and achieved fascinating effects as you can see in the detail shots above.
driveby ). Phillips offers now "Fastnacht" (2010, oil on canvas) which is Swiss German and means carneval.
Psycho Spaghetti Western
Above: "Pavillon" by Helen Frankenthaler(1971, acrylic on canvas);
"Untitled (S176)" by Christopher Wool (2005, enamel on linen);
"Gravel Master" by Dan Rees (2005, oil, pebble dash on canvas)
I am always fascinated by Mark Tansey`s works. Here his gorgeous mountain landscape called "Hedge" (2011, oil on canvas).
Hyped Glamour Stars
Phillips has of course some of the much hyped glamour stars of the current art scene :
A real butterfly (!), part of "Love Sweetness" (2003, butterflies, household gloss on canvas)
and the painting: "The McLean" (2006, oil on canvas, in artist`s frame) which shows the technical skills of Hirst.
The shots were mostly taken with my humble camera (Pansonic Lumix ). You could find better images on their website. But anyway
