Fort Worth, Texas, artist Sedrick Huckaby is answering that question through a solo showcase of works completed during a 2012 artistic project. In addition to the art, these are stories worth telling.
Steven Harvey Fine Art Projects in New York City is pleased to currently be hosting a solo exhibition of paintings, sculptures, drawings, and prints by Fort Worth artist Sedrick Huckaby. Titled “The 99%,” the exhibition is composed of works created in 2012 during a project under the same name.
“Huckaby’s goal, in the drawings, prints, and paintings, was to represent the voice of a community not traditionally imaged in portraiture” the gallery reports. “He considered the totality of his project to be like a quilt, so that these individual voices were heard as one unified community. Family quilts have, additionally, been an important motif for Huckaby. While drawing his friends and acquaintances, Huckaby transcribed sentences and phrases from their conversations into handwritten notes on the sheets. Huckaby looks at the individual as a way of talking about the community.”
