Tom Wesselmann’s supercharged colors mirror popular advertising while the lounging female forms allude to Western art history’s classic figurative motif. A wonderful example of this synthesis is the 1997 painting 1962 Plus 35 Nude Sketch II. Here, the reclining woman’s eyes are barely visible beneath the surface of the paint, yet her lips are a bold red with a thick black outline. The hyper-sexualized presentation of the female body seems to address the consumer culture of Post War America – the commoditization of the flesh. Wesselmann’s dazzling paintings bring together elements of art historical tradition and 1960s imagination, creating a singular style.

Gary Hume's "Seabird" (2006) is a bold, innovative work that shows his talent in seamlessly forming a geometric composition with his signature gloss-paint on aluminum technique. This piece is bright, playful, and an excellent example of Hume's work.
<br>
<br>Gary Hume was an early member of the "YBA" or Young British Artist group.  Hume participated, alongside Damien Hirst, in the seminal 1988 London exhibition "Freeze."  Elected to the Royal Academy in 2001, Hume was also nominated for the 1996 Turner Prize. The artist was also subject of a critically acclaimed 2013 retrospective exhibition at the Tate Britain.  
<br>
<br>Hume's work is widely represented in Museum collections worldwide, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, The Philadelphia Museum of Art, and the Tate in London.

Sculptural work by Theaster Gates is anchored in the artist’s long-standing commitment to social action and responsibility, rooted in his home city of Chicago. The wooden frame of "Lathe Black Box" from 2012 is made of wood from The Dorchester Project, one of his best-known pieces. The project transformed a dilapidated building in Chicago’s South Side into a community gathering place and a celebration of local culture. Gates has described this project as part of a “circular ecological system,” selling sculptural works from the material of these projects to finance the ongoing building renovations. In recent years, his creative efforts do not only consist of making fine art from construction materials, but also extend to creating construction materials as fine art. 
<br>
<br>Much of Gates’s work deals with history, memory, and renewal. The mirrored glass at the center of "Lathe Black Box" creates an ambiguous effect, confronting the viewer with their own reflection.
