FAUZUL YUSRI (b. 1974), Di Dinding, 2014, Mixed media on jute

Lot 73: FAUZUL YUSRI (b. 1974), Di Dinding, 2014, Mixed media on jute

by Henry Butcher Art Auctioneers

March 29, 2015, 1:00 PM SGT

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Estimated Price: MYR10,000 - MYR15,000

Description: Di Dinding (On the Wall) depicts an epically witty illustration of haphazard doodles and words hand-drawn over a murky shade of green with hints of white, beige, yellow and red. Fauzul Yusri's sporadic childlike drawings of sunflower, dinosaur, stickwoman, human faces, elephant, sailboat, among other instinctive scrawls with words such as 'bentuk' (shape), 'don't', 'keras', and a Jawi writing 'بإك يڅ لكرن' which reads 'lakaran yang baik' (a good sketch) on the left side of the artwork are humorous and visually engaging. Fauzul Yusri graduated from Universiti Institut Teknologi MARA in Shah Alam in 1999 and since then has been exhibiting in various galleries in Malaysia, Indonesia, Hong Kong, Singapore and the UK. He was granted his first solo by Elm Quay Fine Arts in 2001 which was simply titled Works on Canvas followed by Cages in 2003. His other solo exhibitions included Pop Primitive (2004), Neolithic (2006), Ground (2007), Raw (2009), Play (2009), Guris (2011) and more recently, Coreng (2013) at Taksu Gallery, Kuala Lumpur. He has also participated in numerous group shows since 1996 with leading art galleries namely Pace Gallery, National Art Gallery Malaysia, Soka Gakkai Malaysia, Valentine Willie Fine Art, NN Gallery and more. Fauzul Yusri also received special Mentions in the Young Contemporary Artists in 2002 and Bank Negara's Kijang Awards in 2004. His work has been collected by numerous private collectors, corporates and institutions such as Bank Negara Malaysia, EQ Fine Arts Gallery Kuala Lumpur, HSBC Bank Malaysia Berhad, National Art Gallery Malaysia and Seksan Design to name but a few.

KHALIL IBRAHIM (b. 1934), Fishermen Series, 1994, ink on paper

by Henry Butcher Art Auctioneers

March 29, 2015, 1:00 PM SGT

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Estimated Price: MYR6,000 - MYR9,000

Description: A classic theme by Khalil Ibrahim, Fishermen Series illustrates a group of women and men from the fishing community of West coast Malaysia. Three female figures in the foreground with one of them face the opposite direction where a group of men are working indistinctively. Their visible figures demonstrate the artist's adeptness in managing the ink medium. Khalil Ibrahim graduated with a National Diploma of Design in Fine Arts at the prestigious St. Martin's School of Art and Design in London in 1964 (post-graduate in 1965). He turned into a full-time artist in 1966. Khalil was a co-founder of the Malaysian Watercolour Society and had his first double solo of London works and Malaysian batiks at Samat Art Gallery, Kuala Lumpur in 1970. That year, he also had a solo exhibition in Indonesia, the first Malaysian to have done so. He has participated in numerous solo and group exhibitions in Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia and Switzerland and his works have been collected by the National Museum in Singapore, Fukuoka Museum of Art in Japan, New South Wales Museum of Art in Sydney and the Royal National Art Gallery of Jordan.

FAUZUL YUSRI (b. 1974), Blotch, 2007, mixed media on canvas

Lot 16: FAUZUL YUSRI (b. 1974), Blotch, 2007, mixed media on canvas

by Henry Butcher Art Auctioneers

March 29, 2015, 1:00 PM SGT

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Estimated Price: MYR8,000 - MYR10,000

Description: Known for his distinctively naïve stylistic manner of painting, Fauzul Yusri captures his audience with the sophistication of his mark-makings. Presented here is Blotch, a large-scale abstract work on a white background painted over in patches of ivory, grey and brown. His intuitive gestures of brushworks, juxtaposition of colours and scrawls of lines and dots create a construction of harmonious composition. At the top left edge of the painting sees the silhouette of a couple of bisons - resembling the shapes in the Cave of Altamira in Spain famous for its Upper Paleolithic cave paintings featuring drawings and polychrome rock paintings of wild mammals and human hands - while in the right corner of the middle section sees a brown hued splotch with an engraving that resembles a house. Fauzul Yusri graduated from Universiti Institut Teknologi MARA in Shah Alam in 1999 and since then has been exhibiting in various galleries in Malaysia, Indonesia, Hong Kong, Singapore and the UK. He was granted his first solo by Elm Quay Fine Arts in 2001 which was simply titled Works on Canvas followed by Cages in 2003. His other solo exhibitions included Pop Primitive (2004), Neolithic (2006), Ground (2007), Raw (2009), Play (2009), Guris (2011) and more recently, Coreng (2013) at Taksu Gallery, Kuala Lumpur. He has also participated in numerous group shows since 1996 with leading art galleries namely Pace Gallery, National Art Gallery Malaysia, Soka Gakkai Malaysia, Valentine Willie Fine Art, NN Gallery and more. Fauzul Yusri also received special Mentions in the Young Contemporary Artists in 2002 and Bank Negara's Kijang Awards in 2004. His work has been collected by numerous private collectors, corporates and institutions such as Bank Negara Malaysia, EQ Fine Arts Gallery Kuala Lumpur, HSBC Bank Malaysia Berhad, National Art Gallery Malaysia and Seksan Design to name but a few.

by Swann Auction Galleries

April 2, 2015, 2:30 PM EST

New York, NY, USA

Estimated Price: $30,000 - $40,000

Description: LOÏS MAILOU JONES (1905 - 1998) Lobsterville Beach. Oil on linen canvas, 1945. 660x813 mm; 26x32 inches. Signed and dated in oil, lower right recto. Signed and inscribed "Howard University, Washington, DC" in ink, and titled in chalk on the upper stretcher bar, verso. Provenance: private collection, MD. This impressive Impressionist canvas is one of the largest landscapes by Loïs Mailou Jones we have located of a Martha's Vineyard subject. This bustling beach scene is from the two mile long Lobsterville Beach found at the western end of the island above Aquinnah (formerly Gay Head). In the early 1940s, Jones had already begun a successful career as a painter with her inclusion in exhibitions at the Phillips Collection, the National Academy of Design, the Barnett-Aden Gallery in Washington, DC, and the Institute of Modern Art in Boston. In 1945, Jones received a BA degree in art education, magna cum laude, from Howard University. Earlier in 1941, she painted another local beach scene Indian Shops, Gay Head, Massachusetts, 1940. Now in the collection of the Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington, DC, the painting received the Robert Woods Bliss Award for Landscape from the The Society of Washington Artists at the Corcoran Gallery. Benjamin pp. 49-50.

CHARLES WHITE (1918 - 1979) Head of a Woman.

Lot 105: CHARLES WHITE (1918 - 1979) Head of a Woman.

by Swann Auction Galleries

April 2, 2015, 2:30 PM EST

New York, NY, USA

Estimated Price: $10,000 - $15,000

Description: CHARLES WHITE (1918 - 1979) Head of a Woman. Charcoal, graphite and pencil on thin artificial vellum, circa early 1970s. 483x406 mm; 19x16 inches. With the artist's estate signature ink stamp, lower right. Provenance: the artist's estate; Heritage Gallery, Los Angeles; the Allan and Susan Marion collection, Beverly Hills; Heritage Gallery, Los Angeles, private collection, with the gallery label on the frame back. Exhibited: Looking In, Looking Out, Vincent Price Art Museum, Los Angeles, 2002; Charles White, Images of Dignity, Bakersfield Museum of Art, Bakersfield, CA, 2003 (traveling exhibition.) This careful study of a woman's head is a strong example of the Charles White's later work, and his use of preparatory drawings. With similar strong cheek bones and profile, White appears to be revisiting the figure depicted in his Mother Courage, 1963, one of the artist's monumental linoleum cuts. White made several versions of this strong female figure, including his oil on canvas Mother Courage II, 1974, in the collection of the National Academy of Design, New York.

Estimated Price: $5,000 - $7,000

Description: DELILAH WILLIAMS PIERCE (1904 - 1992) Nebulae. Acrylic on linen canvas, circa 1979-1982. 610x508 mm; 24x20 inches. Signed in oil, lower right recto. Signed and inscribed Nebulae Series with her Washington DC address in ink, upper stretcher bar verso. Provenance: private collection, Chicago, IL.

Born in Washington, DC, she received her bachelor's degree from Howard University, where she studied under Loïs Mailou Jones and James Lesesne Wells, and a master's degree from Columbia University. Active as both an artist and art educator, she exhibited at the Smithsonian Institution, the Corcoran Gallery of Art and the Barnett-Aden Gallery in Washington, DC through the late 1960s. This later abstract series was clearly inspired by the work of friend and fellow artist Alma Thomas. From this same series, Nebulae, watercolor, 1982, is in the Evan Tibbs collection at the Corcoran Museum that was recently transfered to the National Gallery, Washington, DC. Other works of hers are found in the collections of the Smithsonian American Art Museum, Howard University and the University of the District of Columbia.

KHALIL IBRAHIM (b. 1934), Recycling Nude, 1965, Oil on canvas

Lot 54: KHALIL IBRAHIM (b. 1934), Recycling Nude, 1965, Oil on canvas

by Henry Butcher Art Auctioneers

March 29, 2015, 1:00 PM SGT

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Estimated Price: MYR40,000 - MYR60,000

Description: An early abstract piece dated 1965 by one of Malaysia's celebrated artists Khalil Ibrahim, Recycling Nude was conceived perhaps upon his return from United Kingdom. Inspired by the glorious Swinging London scene of the sixties, this jovial abstract piece illustrates organic swirling shapes in a cheerful palette of yellow, red, blue and green signifying a sense of liberation. Intense swirls in tangerine and red dominate the upper part of the canvas while the lower section is loosely painted in various shapes and colours to achieve a soothing effect, complementing the entire composition in harmony. Khalil Ibrahim graduated with a National Diploma of Design in Fine Arts at the prestigious St. Martin's School of Art and Design in London in 1964 (post-graduate in 1965). He turned into a full-time artist in 1966. Khalil was a co-founder of the Malaysian Watercolour Society and had his first double solo of London works and Malaysian batiks at Samat Art Gallery, Kuala Lumpur in 1970. That year, he also had a solo exhibition in Indonesia, the first Malaysian to have done so. He has participated in numerous solo and group exhibitions in Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia and Switzerland and his works have been collected by the National Museum in Singapore, Fukuoka Museum of Art in Japan, New South Wales Museum of Art in Sydney and the Royal National Art Gallery of Jordan.

PETER HARRIS (b. 1923 - d. 2009), Sabah Ethnicity, 1958, Pastel and ink on paper

Lot 62: PETER HARRIS (b. 1923 - d. 2009), Sabah Ethnicity, 1958, Pastel and ink on paper

by Henry Butcher Art Auctioneers

March 29, 2015, 1:00 PM SGT

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Estimated Price: MYR4,000 - MYR6,000

Description: Sabah Ethnicity illustrates a group of Sabah women - as the title suggests - in a remarkable composition, an elderly woman adorning a chilli red fabric headdress and lemon yellow blouse stares at the viewer while three ladies are spotted in the background. Peter Harris' swift ink strokes create a balanced intensity in applying shadow and contrast. The employment of pastel softens the crudeness of lines producing an immaculate picture. Peter Harris laid the foundation of early art education in the then Malaya, first as Art superintendent of the Federation of Malaya (1951 - 1960) and then at Gaya College in Sabah (1962 - 1967). He was accorded the National Art Gallery's first retrospective in 1960. He was perhaps better known as founder of the Wednesday Art Group in Kuala Lumpur in 1952 and was awarded the MBE (Member, Order of the British Empire) by Queen Elizabeth II of England in 1963. He was largely forgotten until Galeri Wan mounted a retrospective for him in 1997 with the help of artist Yeoh Jin Leng and this was followed by another exhibition at The Art Gallery, Penang in 2001. REFERENCE Peter Harris - Founder of Wednesday Art Group , The Art Gallery, Penang, 2001. Peter Harris Memorial Exhibition , Art Salon@SENI and The Art Gallery, Penang, 2009.

by Henry Butcher Art Auctioneers

March 29, 2015, 1:00 PM SGT

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Estimated Price: MYR12,000 - MYR16,000

Description: In Mat Ali Mat Som's Dendam Tak Sudah exhibition catalogue, Professor Dr. Zakaria Ali wrote in an essay titled The Sculptures of Mat Ali Mat Som: "The fighter in Langkah Rahsia Nampak Berpunca (Visible Origin of Secret Steps), finds most congenial to develop the crouching style, one that lets him cling to the earth, unflinching and formidable like the roots of ancient trees, like the rocks of volcanic eruptions. Every fighter strives to have a secret set of steps his enemy least anticipates. In friendly silat exhibition or performances these steps are seldom displayed, if ever. Only when one is cornered, would they be employed; even then, most sparingly. They are dear to the fighter who has practiced long and hard to acquire them." Mat Ali obtained a BA (HONS) in Fine Art at Universiti Teknologi MARA in 1997. His recognition includes winning Third Prize in the Kuala Lumpur Sculpture Contest and an Honourable Mention in the Phillip Morris Malaysia Art Awards, Kuala Lumpur. Since 2009, Mat Ali has had a number of shows at prominent galleries in Malaysia. He participated in Young and New at House of Matahati in 2009 and later that year had his solo show Dendam Tak Sudah at Metro Fine Art Gallery. Other exhibitions included Artriangle at National Art Gallery, Kuala Lumpur in 2010, while 2012 has been Ali's busiest, showing his works at A Meter Diameter at House of Matahati, Lineage at Art Accent Gallery, Pameran Pelukis Selangor at Galeri Shah Alam as well as at the grand opening of Rosella Gallery in Singapore.

Estimated Price: MYR35,000 - MYR50,000

Description: An iconic piece by Dato' Chuah Thean Teng, the world-acknowledged Father of Batik Painting, Mother and Children illustrates a seated female figure in side profile baring her left breast suckling her young child while his brother waits in line. This pacifying imagery is a standard artistic symbol of maternal love and nurturing often depicted in the artist's work. A classic subject matter executed in Teng's signature green, brown and black dye adorned with beautiful crackles in the background, this fine work of art is truly a collector's prize. Sourced from the United States, this piece has been kept in pristine condition framed in an out of the ordinary manner. After over three decades, this precious gem will appear on public viewing for the first time in its homeland. Dato' Chuah Thean Teng is undisputedly a recognised artist internationally after his successful first exhibition abroad at the Commonwealth Institute in England in 1959. His paintings, Two Of A Kind (1968) and Tell You A Secret (1987), took on iconic status when they were selected for UNICEF greeting cards. Teng first studied at Xiamen (Amoy) Art Institute in China but could not complete because of ill health. He was the first Malaysian to be honoured with a Retrospective by the National Art Gallery (NAG) in 1965, and his next was by the Penang State Art Gallery in 1994. The Penang State Government awarded him 'Datoship' in 1998 and the 'Live Heritage Award' in 2005. In 2008, the NAG again offered recognition to Teng, this time billing it a "tribute" exhibition. His major works are on show at his Yahong Art Gallery in Batu Ferrringhi in Penang, which is a veritable museum of his art. Yahong also showcases the works of Teng's three sons and two grandsons who have all followed his creative footsteps. REFERENCEChuah Thean Teng Retrospective , Penang Museum and Art Gallery, 1994. Teng Batik , Yahong Gallery, Penang, 1968. Teng: An Appreciation , National Art Gallery, 2009.
