Provenance: Finley Collection.

Note: Charlie Lucas was born in 1951 in Birmingham, Alabama as one of 14 children. His greatest artistic influence was his great-grandfather, Cain Jackson, a well-known blacksmith in the area. He introduced Lucas to the tools and materials that would “speak” to Lucas decades later. Lucas left school at the age of 14 and traveled in the southeastern United States working odd jobs until he suffered a serious back injury in 1984. After undergoing surgery and a difficult recovery, he began shaping and welding metal together to create sculptures of animals and people. In 1980, he also began painting using house paint on cardboard or plywood and found objects. The subjects of his works are often autobiographical, and his paintings and titles capture the viewer’s imagination. The painting offered here highlights Lucas’s use of bright colors and abstractions, bearing a striking resemblance to works by twentieth century artists Kandinsky and Miro.

Note: Bernice Sims raised six children as a single mother outside Brewton, Alabama near the Hickory Hill community where she herself had spent her childhood. Sims was active in the Civil Rights Movement and participated in the Selma-Montgomery March, witnessing the events on the Edmund Pettus Bridge in 1965. She later depicted this scene in multiple paintings, one of which was featured on a U.S. postage stamp. In the early 1980’s following a knee replacement surgery, Sims took a continuing education art class where her teacher encouraged her to “paint her own way.” She captured scenes from life or memories of events such as the painting offered here, where she illustrates a charming farm scene filled with people and animals in the midst of everyday life.

528. Willie White (American/Louisiana, 1908-2000), "Watermelons, Dinosaurs, Planet and Trees", 1996, marker on paper, signed lower center, pencil-dated en verso, 22 1/4 in. x 30 in., unframed. $300/500
Note: Born in rural Mississippi, Willie White took an interest in art while observing artists in the French Quarter. He began to experiment with art using house paint on fences he built around the city of New Orleans.
In the 1960s, he began working mainly in marker on poster board. His visual vocabulary was taken from things he saw in everyday life – images from television, dreams and fantastic creatures. The work on display here features some of his oft recurring themes: watermelons, trees, dinosaurs and planets. Portraying these subjects as simple shapes and fields of color (with the natural “brush” stroke of the markers used as texture), White creates a balanced composition full of bright whimsy.

531. Henry Speller (American/Tennessee, 1903-1997), "Three Generations", graphite and crayon on paper, unsigned, 24 in. x 18 in., framed. $800/1200
Provenance: Gilley's Gallery, Baton Rouge, LA; Finley Collection.

Note: From the delta region of Mississippi, Henry Speller labored as a sharecropper and on the Mississippi river loading cotton bales. While working, Speller would often “make up stories to stay sane” about the women he admired on passing paddlewheel boats and later draw his daydreams. The majority of his works are pencil and crayon sketches of beautifully dressed and seemingly unapproachable women. Art collector William Arnett described Speller’s work as the work of exclusion: racial, economic and social. As is evident in the work offered here, the power of Speller’s drawings lies in the fervent tension between the attainable and the impossible.

Note: Raymond Coins was born in 1904 in Stuart, Virginia and moved to North Carolina at the age of seven. Coins dropped out of school by the seventh grade to work on the family farm. He continued to work in farming and the tobacco industry until his retirement in 1976, when he began carving stone into arrowheads and ax heads. These small carvings soon led to a hobby of making figures of animals, people, and religious imagery in stone and wood. Coins’ sculptures strongly resemble primitive tribal carvings, although his inspiration comes from the material itself. He has said: “It comes in my mind what to make. I’ll roll the rock around and see what it makes. It pops in mind. It’s a mystery to me. I am amazed by it.” The sculpture on offer here titled “Angel” is a figure Coins frequently depicted in his work - an example of the heavenly bodies that exist in the stone and trees as revealed through Coins’ carvings.

Provenance: Gilley's Gallery, Baton Rouge, LA; Finley Collection.

Note: Mary Tillman Smith was born to sharecroppers in rural Mississippi. She was born with a hearing impairment which resulted in difficulty speaking or being understood. As a result, she was ostracized by the local community and turned to art as a refuge. Smith painted on tin and plywood from the landfill near her home, and she was fascinated by patterns and lines. The work offered here is characteristic of her work, where she employed large fields of black to offset bright monochromatic backgrounds and attract passing motorists on the highway to her outdoor gallery.

Note: Born in New Orleans into poverty, Herbert Singleton began carving walking sticks at age of seventeen to pay debts and support himself. Singleton never used precut wood for his sculptures, instead preferring branches and stumps found along the Mississippi river levee. One such piece is “Snake Totem” offered here, carved from a single large piece of driftwood and painted using bright, simple colors to emphasize the menacing nature of the form. This work also emphasizes one of the inexplicable aspects of Singleton's work, the often similarity with art of the Yoruba tribe in Nigeria of which Singleton had no knowledge.
