Lot description
"Spokes n' Strokes (Hermes)" (2007) is a rare and important example of Jonathan Seliger's iconic works, and is only "Hermes" painting to come to international auction. Dimensions: 47.25 x 47.25 inches (120 x 120 cm), unframed and in excellent condition. Seliger is famous for his larger-than-life meticulous reproductions/ interpretations of luxury boxes, bags and containers for everyday consumables, particularly luxury goods and fast food items. Seliger's visual vocabulary combines ideas about scale, seriality, and fabrication, together with the content of pop art, as well as incredible attention to detail and surface. His use of language, the naming of artworks adds still other dimensions to the work, as elements of humor and social critique.
