Author: Richard Brewster | Posted: 26th July, 2015
A Petite Contemporary Art auction – designed by Leonard Joel to highlight quality contemporary art pieces that deserve showcasing – will be held from 2pm Thursday July 30 at 333 Malvern Road, South Yarra.
Numbering only 40 art works with estimates ranging from only a few hundred dollars, this boutique auction is particularly aimed at bringing younger buyers to the art market with pieces that should have broad appeal.
Of particular note is Rona Green’s Pretty Boys 2005 (lot 1) and David Band’s Untitled (Bottle on Blue Background) (lot 3).
Other works of interest include Ron Mueck’s It’s a Girl! 2006 limited edition key ring (lot 14) commissioned by Momart in the United Kingdom.
Dan Withey’s They Tell Me 2000 acrylic on wood is another exciting piece, while Justin Fluerring’s Facial Forms (Blue) 2015 (lot 18) and Facial Forms (Red) 2015 (lot 32) enamels on canvas should attract a strong following.
Other highlights include Tracy Dods Shadow Bondi 2003 oil on canvas (lot 20), Gloria Stern’s Speed 2002 (lot 24) (one of several skateboarding oils on canvas she has in the auction) and Frank Malerba’s The Kiss oil on canvas (lot 34).
