About this auction

BNO is thrilled to invite you to our Mixed Media & Sculptures auction, offering a cornucopia of works from these exciting and ever-changing genres.

In visual arts, the term Mixed Media refers to a work of art that embodies more than one medium. For example, a canvas that features acrylic paint, ink, and collage could be termed Mixed Media. In this way, the term is an umbrella for visual art works that reflect more than one type of artistic medium. Mixed media artworks are currently popular in the art world. The term has been used since the Post-Modern art period of the twentieth century; yet the practice of combining different types of media to create an artwork dates back to antiquity.

Many artists as well as collectors are intrigued by the tactile elements of Mixed Media Art as well as its two or three-dimensional presentations. Though many artists rely on their technical training when it comes to the mixing of materials, they also often explore new techniques and combinations of styles when working with Mixed Media, making this art form consistently a pioneering and continuously evolving form of art.

Sculpture is an artistic form in which hard or plastic materials are worked into three-dimensional art objects. The designs may be embodied in freestanding objects, in reliefs on surfaces, or in environments ranging from tableaux to contexts that envelop the spectator. An enormous variety of media may be used, including clay, wax, stone, metal, fabric, glass, wood, plaster, rubber, and random “found” objects. Materials may be carved, modeled, molded, cast, wrought, welded, sewn, assembled, or otherwise shaped and combined.
