Description:

Todd McKie Man und Woman Monotype, Boston, Massachusetts, 1996, signed and dated in pencil in the lower margin by the artist, framed, total ht. 25 1/4, wd. 29 in.

Provenance: ARTcetera benefit art auction for the Boston Aids Action Committee.

Note: Todd McKie's work is among the most instantly recognized and thoroughly loved art produced in Boston over the past three decades. Having reduced his compositional operation to a few key elements, he nevertheless manages to summon a complete range of contemporary life's pleasures and travails as perceived by a bemused participant.

Admired by peers, collectors, and curators for his painterly invention and wit, McKie's work is, in fact often less understandable than it seems at first blush. Enveloped in a risible atmosphere of absurd predicament, the dilemmas of McKie's protagonists resist straightforward interpretation.

Avidly collected, McKie's works are held in many private and corporate collections and in the public collections of major museums throughout the region. The artist reside in Cambridge, Massachusetts with his wife, furniture-maker, Judy Kensley McKie.
Estimate $20-200
