BNO is delighted to present a carefully curated auction of Abstract and Surrealist Art.
“Surrealism is destructive, but it destroys only what it considers to be shackles limiting our vision.”
Abstract Art can be a painting or sculpture (including assemblage) that does not depict a person, place or thing in the natural world. Strictly speaking, the word abstract means to separate or withdraw something from something else. With abstract art, the subject of the work is based on what you see: color, shapes, brushstrokes, size, scale and, in some cases, the process. Abstract art is often seen as carrying a moral dimension, in that it can be seen to stand for virtues such as order, purity, simplicity and spirituality. Representative abstract artists include: Georgia O’Keefe, Piet Mondrian, Jackson Pollock, Vassily Kandinsky, Paul Klee, Joan Miro, Frank Stella, Mark Rothko, Alexander Calder, and Robert Motherwell.
Surrealism is a cultural movement that began in the early 1920s, and is best known for its visual artworks and writings. The aim was to "resolve the previously contradictory conditions of dream and reality into an absolute reality, a super-reality". Artists painted unnerving, illogical scenes with photographic precision, created strange creatures from everyday objects and developed painting techniques that allowed the unconscious to express itself. Representative surrealist artists include: Andre Breton, Jean Arp, Max Ernst, Yves Tanguy, Man Ray, Andre Masson, Rene Magritte, Luis Bunuel, Leonora Carrington, and Salvador Dali.
Artists in this auction include: Salvador Dali, Joan Ponc, Eugene Hawkins, Victoria Blak, Bebu Dura, Albert Castaneda, Billy Barkley, Juliette Cove, Eliot Eames Saarinen, Alexander Donskoi, Angel Muriel, Mathias Duhamel, and Adam Stone.

"If the trees look yellow to the artist, then painted a bright yellow they must be." -Paul Gauguin
BNO is excited to present a carefully curated selection of works for our first Fauvism Auction.
Fauvism, the first twentieth-century movement in modern art, was initially inspired by the examples of Vincent van Gogh, Paul Gauguin, Georges Seurat, and Paul Cézanne. The Fauves (French for "wild beasts") were a loosely allied group of French painters with shared interests. Matisse emerged as the leader of the group, whose members shared the use of intense color as a vehicle for describing light and space, and who redefined pure color and form as means of communicating the artist's emotional state. In these regards, Fauvism proved to be an important precursor to Cubism and Expressionism as well as a touchstone for future modes of abstraction.
Above all, Fauvism valued individual expression. The artist's direct experience of his subjects, his emotional response to nature, and his intuition were all more important than academic theory or elevated subject matter. All elements of painting were employed in service of this goal.
Works presented in this auction are by the artists: Jeff Roland, Brent Boller, Linda LeKinff, Pamela Gedeon, Lony Wing, Serge Lis Eliseev, Henri Matisse, Michelle Parboosingh, Bahram Hajou, Samuel Gillis, Itzchak Tarkay, Ernst Fuchs, Jordan Bogash, DrettyINK, and Nicola Carpinelli.
