0

October 25-December 18, 2011

Barkley L. Hendricks: Some Like it Hot focuses on the artist’s work created in response to his travels to Jamaica and West Africa. With their compelling scenery and inhabitants, these tropical regions have provided him with a wealth of inspiration, and the resulting photographs and paintings represent a significant portion of his creative output. The exhibition includes large-scale figurative paintings, a series of landscapes on lunette and tondo shaped canvases, renderings in oil and watercolor of fruits and vegetation, and photographs selected from his prolific production in that mediumamong them a suite of photographs of activist and Afrobeat icon Fela Kuti that will be exhibited for the first time.
