Barkley L. Hendricks’ Heart Hands Eyes Mind is on view at Jack Shainman Gallery February 28- April 6, 2013 (opening reception is from 6-8pm on 3/28). The exhibit will include the paintings Hendricks has become most known for (his portraits), as well as landscape paintings and photographs (most of which have never been exhibited before).  Hendrick’s paintings are a direct engagement with art history, the tradition of portraiture and a confrontation of institutional portrayal of the black subject. Hendricks has always worked between the realms of photography and painting, having studied with Walker Evans at Yale. He was introduced early on to portraiture through the perspective of the camera’s lens. More HERE.

PS. One of my favorite pieces by Hendricks is Lawdy Mama (Featured Above). Listen to Thelma Golden, Director & Chief Curator of the Studio Museum in Harlem as she gives a brief history of the painting (Lawdy Mama is part of the museum’s collection).
