Lin Tianmiao, the most recent artist to join Lelong, is represented by Untitled (Bonsai Tree) (2012), a leafless, aged Bonsai tree bound by thread and surrounded by a mound of miniature, gold figurines. This sculpture is a stunning, unique example of Lin's signature thread winding technique and her careful choice of bold color. Lin's work can currently been seen in two solo exhibitions in New York including her first major U.S. museum exhibition Bound Unbound at the Asia Society on view through January 27, 2013, and her first show at Lelong, Badges, on view until December 15, 2012.

Cildo Meireles's Canto #1B (1967-2011) belongs to a series of his early installations that were conceived in the late 1960s, and have been realized into sculptures from 1967 to the present. Canto #1B explores an imaginary space through the life-size construction of a corner of a pink, domestic room. This historical installation is Meireles's first exploration of space, scale, and the relationship of the spectator to a work of art.

Sean Scully's Standing Grey (2001) is a large painting divided by brushstroke in blocks of black, grey, and taupe. Scully's deceptively reductive vocabulary communicates the duality of harmony and fracture that mirrors the vulnerability of the human condition. He has had over ten solo exhibitions this year, including Notations: Sean Scully currently on view at the Philadelphia Museum of Art until February 17, 2013.
