NEW YORK, 22 February 2018 – Sotheby’s S|2 Gallery in New York is pleased to present an exhibition of collages, encaustics and silkscreens by Pritzker Prize-winning architect and artist Richard Meier. Famed for his gleaming, clean-lined structures like the Getty Center in Los Angeles, The Barcelona Museum of Contemporary Art, Rome’s Jubilee Church, and the High Museum of Art in Atlanta, Richard Meier: Artist seeks to explore a lesser-known side of the star-architect – the artist. On view from 22 February through 29 March, the 30+ works examine the relationship between space, form and light – all fundamental concepts for Meier’s architecture.
Julian Dawes, Vice President, Co-Head of Impressionist & Modern Art Day Dale said: “Getting to know Richard Meier the artist has been an incredible trea...
on view at Gary Lichtenstein Editions through December 31, 2017
Originally a profitable industrial technology, silk screen printing was adopted by artists well before the 20th century. Although credit is generally given to Andy Warhol for popularizing the medium as an artistic technique, hundreds of artists were embracing silkscreen right around the same time including Charles Hinman, Robert Indiana, Roy Lichtenstein, Robert Motherwell and Robert Rauschenberg.
The Painters and the Printer is a showcase of silkscreen works produced in collaboration with Master Printer, Gary Lichtenstein. The installation features a variety of different methods and applications. It is a fascinating look at both the versatility of silkscreen and the different ways in which artists choose to use it.
The collaborative practice of Ron Tomlinson and Amir Akhavan brings to light a unique story of an unpredictable, artistic duo whose focus is the exploration of the qualities of humanity – through a variety of aesthetic interpretations and expressions.
Tomlinson’s career as a painter is vast and he is perhaps best known for the studio he has established in Fort Worth, Texas, a home-away-from-home for anyone who finds the front door and can demonstrate a true commitment to the practice of art. Twenty years ago, a chance meeting in Paris introduced Akhavan to Tomlinson and, despite geographical distances (Akhavan splits his time between New York and Tehran), the mentorship has endured.
Over the years, the subject of South American immigration has featured predominantly in the paintings of Tomlinson and the...
Janette Beckman is a pioneer in the world of visionary collaboration as is evident in her vast photographic portfolio of creative artists, most of whom are now legends in their respective industries. When Beckman chose silkscreen, another collaborative process, to produce her newest body of work, Gary Lichtenstein embraced the opportunity to provide an environment that would encourage her exploration.
Janette Beckman: New Silkscreens offers a historic view of groundbreaking moments in time for a number of musicians and bands including, RUN DMC, LL Cool J and Salt-N-Pepa. Beckman’s suite of prints is reminiscent of her classic photographs but entirely unique by virtue of the choices she has made in terms of color, saturation and texture. Each piece tells a story and Beckman’s interpretations are, in fact, found...

These works reflect the common thread of American values in us all. In this regard, I believe that our similarities outweigh our differences. The goal here is to create a platform for discussion and understanding.

Each of the works within this exhibition is a carefully contemplated assemblage on paper and canvas, comprised of acrylic paint, silkscreen and other multimedia. Silkscreen is used here as a painting tool – not as a printer’s technique. The application of silkscreen occurred in tandem with the process of collage as each was created individually. Some of the pieces contain legi...
Pritzker Prize winning architect, Richard Meier is known for his international body of work, acclaimed for its timeless, classical, iconic design. The Barcelona Museum of Contemporary Art, the Getty Center in Los Angeles, Rome’s Jubilee Church, the High Museum of Art in Atlanta, the Hans Arp Museum in Germany are to name just a few.
Throughout his career Meier has contributed consistently to another important portfolio: the creation of his own artwork.
Richard Meier began experimenting with collage in the early 1950’s, during his undergraduate years at Cornell University. In addition to architecture, he studied art history and painting under Alan Solomon and John Hartell, respectively. After a brief apprenticeship following graduation, Meier took off on a European tour, intent on finding a “finishing” posi...

Richard Meier is one of the most famous and contemporary architects, and one of the most consistent American modernists in his attachment to pure forms. As one of the most celebrated representatives of modern architecture, Meier professes in his architectural work a philosophy of purity, restraint and clarity as an antithesis to the chaos of the surrounding world. Strict functionality of form, constructional laconicism and the rejection of decoration and color apart from white, are essential features of the master’s architectural style. As an artist, Meier reveals a different side of his artistic oeuvre. When working in the collage genre, Meier continues his architectural experiments, contrasting and juxtaposing textures, materials...
