Lot Details

This 2004 work by Christian Holstad belongs to the artist's ongoing "Erasurehead" series, in which he selectively erases and draws over newspaper clips. These negative drawings transform fragments of mass media imagery into ironical, often surrealist small-scale tableaux-- peopled by faceless figures-- that speak to themes of nostalgia, disillusionment, perversion, and loss.

Holstad's inventive, cerebral artwork across a wide range of media is represented in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago, and the Astrup Fearnley Museet for Moderne Kunst in Oslo, among others.

"Love and Hot Air" measures 14 x 7 inches (35.6 x 17.8 cm) and is framed under Plexiglas to larger dimensions, as shown.
