#61 Morning - 1979
By Romare Bearden

Selected by Che Baraka

Morning - 1979

I selected Bearden's "Morning" because it echos and synthesises both aspects of classical and modernist tendencies into one visual voice.

Artist's Statement

My work is informed by an intent that would remove the layered appearances of things and experiences and by way of the art making process, would present meaning as the only “real”.
