Artist Rafael Francisco Salas is known for his depictions of life in rural Wisconsin. His influences are taken from American tradition and rural surroundings. He believes his work “speaks to an indignant desire for a dream continually just beyond reach.” One of the highlighted lots in the upcoming Museum of Wisconsin Art auction, presented by the Museum of Wisconsin Art, is an oil on canvas piece titled Coda by Salas. In the painting, a group of country musicians gathers at a clearing in the woods to make music. The artist’s fascination with country music serves as a recurring subject for his paintings.
Offered lots include work from Brooklyn-based artist Shane McAdams. One available piece, titled Curly Maple, was painted from the ink of ball-point pens on the slab of a Wisconsin tree. McAdams is considered among the leading artists pushing the boundaries of abstraction with ballpoint pen ink. Included in the listings is Peter Poplaski’s ink on Bristol board piece titled Wisconsin Funnies and an untitled set of 1996 drawings by Rosemary Ollison.
