James Turrell’s Ethereal Hologram 10 Leads the Way at Autumn Modern & Contemporary Fine Art AuctionNov 01, 2022 15:00 EDT
Hologram #10, an electrified, mixed-media hologram and glass construction by James Turrell, is one of the leading lots in John Moran Auctioneers’ upcoming Autumn Modern & Contemporary Fine Art sale. Hologram #10 is an homage to abstract painting masters like Mark Rothko. A field of blue light emanates from backlit geometric shapes, evoking an expansive, ethereal ambiance reminiscent of Rothko’s works. Turrell’s version is sculptural. Each shape floats weightlessly, and the radiating light coming from them creates multi-dimensionality. Turrell executed the available work in 2008.
Known as the founding mother of feminist art, Judy Chicago just wanted to be taken as seriously as her male counterparts when she began her career in the 1950s. Born Judith Sylvia Cohen in Chicago, the artist later changed her name to Judy Chicago and accepted the fact that her works were different from those of her male contemporaries. Her work addresses tough subjects such as the Holocaust, toxic masculinity, birth, extinction, and more. Chicago’s love of color and abstraction can be seen in the available Transformation, a 1973 sprayed acrylic and felt-tip pen piece. Find the listed items and more online auctions on Bidsquare.
