MARY WEATHERFORD "CALIFORNIA" LITHO, 2012
Mary Weatherford (b.1963) is a fascinating and highly original artist based in Los Angeles.
While Weatherford had been a professional artist for most of her adult life (she received her MFA from Bard College in 2006) it has been in the last four years that her reputation has been catapulted from regional recognition in California to international acclaim.
Weatherford's breakthrough can be attributed to a series of large-scale abstract works that were intersected with neon interventions. These works were prominently featured in MoMA's recent exhibition "The Forever Now: Contemporary Painting in an Atemporal World"
Today, there are dramatically long waiting lists for similar works. Weatherford, while not a prolific artist, has always been involved in printmaking.
This lovely and ethereal lithograph from 2012 is evocative of her practice. While inherently abstract, Weatherford is highly influenced by her environments; here the eponymous west coast state.
This is an ideal work for a young collector or a seasoned one interested in an accessible price point from this soon-to-be blue chip artist.
