Pushing the limits of her medium, Lynda Benglis revolutionized the concept of sculpture in the 1960s. Benglis entered the spotlight for her poured-latex floor works. Besides latex, many of her pieces experiment with polyurethane, beeswax, luminous paint, plaster, porcelain, glass, and paper to achieve a particular form or texture. Benglis employs abstract concepts that are often inspired by organic and natural forms. Offered in the upcoming Modern + Contemporary Art, Design & Luxury Winter 2021 sale, presented by Palm Beach Modern Auctions, is a crumpled fan sculpture from Lynda Benglis. The piece resembles a twisted handheld fan that reveals a reflective surface.
Included in the auction is Tom Wesselmann’s steel drawing sculpture, titled Monica. The nude figure is shown posing in a hat and beaded jewelry. Wesselmann was among the most prolific American Pop artists of the 20th century. Moving his focus away from Expressionism, he dabbled in classical representations of human figures, landscapes, and still lifes. Visit Bidsquare to view any of these lots or place a bid.
