Robert Pruitt: The Majesty of Kings Long Dead

This event is in the past
Aug 1–Sept 28, 2019
Koplin Del Rio Gallery Pioneer Square (Seattle)
New York-based artist Robert Pruitt will debut new pieces along with old work at his KDR show. A skilled draftsman, Pruitt combines elements of Afro-futurism, black power, and pop culture to create tender portraits of black people. In his newer portraits, the subjects are rendered in charcoal, sometimes adorned with gold leaf and color, while the white space surrounding the subject is filled in with coffee stains. The coffee gives his subjects a hazy sort of glow, an aura that smells like breakfast, and it ages the paper in such a way that it’s almost as if you’ve stumbled upon an artifact. by Stranger Staff Writer Jas Keimig
