Melissa Robles, ‘Remembering Home, After Life (Diptych)’, 2014, Children's Museum of the Arts Auction 2014

Estimated retail value: $250

Deeply inspired by Native American culture, Melissa Robles creates work that draws on its iconography and explores the relationship between imagination and perception. She begins her images with basic shapes, then allows these to evolve organically until she perceives an indefinable object, such as machine, animal, or figure—as in these precise black-and-white compositions.
