Andrew Holmes - Appeal for lost drawings

Andrew Holmes - Appeal for lost drawings

Our long-time client and friend Andrew Holmes is preparing to showcase celebrated work in Everything Loose Will Land, an exhibition exploring the ‘cross-pollination that took place between architects and artists in Los Angeles in the 1970s’. The show is part of wider series of exhibitions spearheaded by Getty focusing on the history of art in Los Angeles, and takes its name from the famous Frank Lloyd Wright quip "Tip the world over on its side and everything loose will land in Los Angeles". Together the collection argues that the ‘loose’ quality of LA was a catalyst for the city’s exciting developments in art and architecture. Throughout this period, artists and architects increasingly drew inspiration from one another for their practice, utilising new ‘commercial tools, industrial materials and photographic processes’ to push the boundaries of their fields. Curated by Sylvia Lavin, the exhibition includes pieces by over 40 artists and art groups working across diverse media.

Andrew Holmes has been invited to contribute several drawings completed between 1972 and 1980 to the exhibition. Three of these drawings were last exhibited at a solo show of Andrew’s works titled ‘Pacific Blue LA’ at the Thumb Gallery in 1981, however all records of who the works were sold to have sadly been lost. The artist would like to appeal for the owners to come forward so that this important collection can be exhibited once again.
