Connect / Reflect / Collect A Selection Of Contemporary ArtMay 26, 2020 12:00 EDT - Jun 04, 2020 12:00 EDT
Amoako Boafo’s Cobinnah with Yellow Nails is one of the highlighted lots in the upcoming Connect/Reflect/Collect auction, presented by Phillips. In the portrait, Cobinnah smiles and looks away from the viewer. By guarding their face, Cobinnah reveals to the viewer their yellow nail polish. Throughout his career, Boafo has used portraiture for, in his own words, “representation, documenting, celebrating and showing new ways to approach blackness.”
The upcoming Phillips event offers 40+ contemporary fine art pieces. This includes Italian artist Sandro Chia’s Vision, Elision, Derision, a graphite and pastel on paper piece. Chia was among the leaders of Transavanguardia, an Italian figurative painting movement. Bidders can also consider Andy Warhol’s paper collage of entrepreneur and television producer Ted Turner. The collage is dated 1986, one year before Warhol’s death. As Warhol was exploring his fascination with the notion of celebrity, Turner was shaping modern media, including starting the world’s first 24-hour news channel, CNN. “Barring satellite problems, we won’t be signing off until the world ends,” said Turner of his new venture.
