Art collection to suit younger auction buyers
Author: Richard Brewster | Posted: 23rd March, 2016
A small collection of paintings and sculptures comprise Leonard Joel’s second petite contemporary art auction from 11.30am Thursday March 24 at 333 Malvern Road, South Yarra.
The inaugural petite contemorary art auction was held in 2015.
This collection includes street art, Roar school and minimalist works that appear to be favourites among younger buyers or discerning purchasers looking for something different.
Most of the works carry estimates of several hundreds of dollars.
Some of the more interesting works include Ron Mueck’s key ring It’s a Girl, Justin Lee Williams’ Untitled, and Daniel Truscott’s Surrealist themes and amusing titles exhibited here in Bird Flu 2005 and There is Always Tomorrow, painted the same year.
Ahmarnya Price’s diptych The Werewolf is an interesting piece bound to attract buyers, while Chris Booth’s Figure 1a (Study) 2010 certainly catches the eye.
Another painting worth considering is Mark Maglaic’s Faces 2008.
