Lot Essay

‘Sunshine and Noir. I live in a city where imagination meets reality and where the collective dreams of the world are being manufactured. It’s a fantastic and inspiring place to work and it helps me to go further into the back of my mind and take the elevator down to my heart. Edward Abbey summed it up nicely: “There is science, logic, reason; there is thought verified by experience, and then there is California”’ (F. Kunath, quoted in S. Mann, ‘Q & A with Artist Friedrich Kunath’, Hammer Projects, Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, 2012, exhibitions/2010/hammer-projects-friedrich-kunath/, [accessed 27 May 2015]).
