Jan Fabre is regarded as an innovative leader in the world of contemporary art. According to his website, he calls himself “… a consilience artist because he always leaps forward in knowledge through the linking of fact-based theory and practice across disciplines.” Fabre’s works connect different artistic styles, providing a new perspective on the visual arts. His work titled Skull with Frog is among the highlighted lots of the upcoming First Open auction, offered by Christie’s.
Another key item in the sale is a painting by Kehinde Wiley, a contemporary African-American painter. By capturing the faces of people of color in his paintings, he explores the boundaries of portraiture. The subjects of his works include fellow artists, complete strangers, and President Barack Obama. His portraits are often set atop floral backgrounds to heighten the viewer’s focus on the subject. One of his pieces, entitled Thomas Armory I, shows a young man in a green sweatshirt atop a background of traditional red flowers. Another featured lot is a piece from Sarah Morris. Inspired by Pop art and Minimalism, her paintings use sharp geometric outlines and pastel hues. View each of these lots and register to bid on Christie’s.
