Barkley Hendricks: Works on Paper
Paintings of plants and fruit by Barkley L. Hendricks, famed for his postmodern portraiture of Black Americans.
This first installment in Skira and Jack Shainman Gallery's five-volume publication project on Barkley L. Hendricks (1945–2017) presents for the first time the artist's works on paper. These images—of flowers and plants, bananas, a watermelon, more abstract imagery—sometimes contain puns, or sometimes suggest the inner mechanics of Hendricks's mind and process, but retain the minute attention he paid his subjects, whether human, vegetable, or mineral.
Barkley Hendricks's Slick (1977) is in the Chrysler's collection.
