Provenance: Collection of Michael Brown and Linda Green, New Orleans.
Note: Although Torres-Tama was born in Ecuador and lived many years in New York and New Jersey, he has considered New Orleans his “spiritual home" since 1984. Working in many forms of artistic expression, including drawing, painting, installations, spoken-word poetry, and performance art, Torres-Tama uses the multiculturalism of his own background to relate to underrepresented groups. In 2009, Torres-Tama worked with the Ogden Museum of Southern Art to create an exhibition entitled Free People of Color and Their Legacy.
In this portrait of historic figure Rose Nicaud, Torres-Tama includes an image of broken chains, alluding to her birth into slavery and the years of hard work necessary to buy her freedom. He prominently features Nicaud’s coffee pot, the literal representation of the manner in which she made her income, first pouring coffee from a cart on the street, and eventually gaining enough prominence in the city to rent a stall in the French Market.
The vibrant colors and bold pastel strokes of the current lot showcase Torres-Tama’s technique throughout the series, which, as Keith Weldon Medley writes, “imbues their portraits with perspective, emotion, and gravitas."

Note: Jack Gates’ work is often difficult to categorize. His combination of fine woodworking skills and sculptural elements result in what is often referred to as sculpted furniture. Gates’ art career began as a graduate student at Tulane University as a sculptor, but he slowly began to drift into furniture. Using his sculptural background as a reference, Gates creates unique designs of one of a kind furniture pieces that display high craftsmanship, sculptural design and master woodworking techniques. Speaking of his work at the Halcyon Contemporary Art Gallery in Terra Haute in April of 2008, Gates says, “…utilitarian function is the subject of the art object."
