The works of Artis Lane, an American contemporary sculptor, draw the viewer’s attention toward social justice and spiritual truth. Her works explore “the truth that the growth of spiritual awareness is continuous,” according to the St. James Guide to Black Artists. Michelle Obama recently unveiled Lane’s sculpture of Sojourner Truth, the first memorial honoring a Black American woman, in a ceremony. A 1989 sculpture by Lane, titled New Women, will be available in Stair’s upcoming Art & Design Auction. Showing a polished bronze woman figure within a circle, the sculpture serves as a metaphor for material concepts. Also of interest is an oil painting of Coney Island by Vestie Davis from 1958. The self-taught American artist frequently painted scenes of New York City.
Sandro Chia was among the founders of the Italian Transavanguardia movement in the 1970s and 80s. In many of his works, Chia uses dynamic compositions and a vibrant palette. The painter-sculptor usually captures his subjects in moments of movement. Available in this auction is a Chia sculpture titled Kneeling Man.
