LOS ANGELES, CA.- The 17th Annual LA Art Show: Modern & Contemporary will feature the California debut of new works by artists Damien Hirst and photographer David Bailey. Locally accessible for the first time, new works by Hirst include ‘The Souls’ series of shimmering foil-block butterfly prints and gold foil block skulls ‘Death or Glory.’ Bailey will exhibit new works of still lives, fashion images, and portraits. Both artists are represented by Paul Stolper Contemporary Art Gallery from London, UK.
Additional gallery highlights include a collection of works by one of California’s most significant contemporary artists, Tom Holland. Holland’s work will be presented by David Richard Contemporary from Santa Fe, NM and will feature pieces from the 1960s, a period in which Holland’s work transitioned from traditional painting on a two-?dimensional plane to more literal, three-?dimensional constructions. Tom Holland’s work is in the collections of many major museums in the United States, including the Museum of Modern Art in New York City, the Guggenheim Museum, the Whitney Museum, the Los Angeles County Museum, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis.
