Barkley L. Hendricks: Works on Paper

Text by Laila Pedro.

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.

Skira and Jack Shainman Gallery's five-volume publication project consists of four hardcover volumes, each providing an in-depth exploration of a corpus of works integral to the artist's output—works on paper, landscape paintings, basketball paintings and photography—in addition to a comprehensive 300-page overview. Each volume includes an essay by a leading international scholar.

Surprising, previously unseen works on paper by Barkley L. Hendricks

Surprising, previously unseen works on paper by Barkley L. Hendricks

"No Title" (1970) is reproduced from Barkley L. Hendricks: Works on Paper, the first in a five-volume series from Skira and Jack Shainman Gallery. Collecting recently discovered works, this volume is somewhat of a revelation, as many of the pieces would not be immediately identifiable with Hendricks' iconic formal portrait style. "In the 1970s, several solar eclipses occurred, visible at various points in North America," Laila Pedro writes. "Hendricks, a technician of light who was fascinated by its functioning in paint, photograph and gold, seems to have been creatively stimulated and intrigued by the massive astronomical phenomenon. He produced a strikingly innovative, fresh set of multimedia experiments that are as freewheeling as they are cerebral and inventive. They share in common a kind of mystical abstracted landscape, with pyramids, sometimes magi, and celestial bodies. In some of them, landscapes are constructed with collage elements like postcards and stamps, in a nearly Dadaesque combination of elements, codes, jokes and puns, or sometimes covered with repeating scribbles." continue to blog
