Brooklyn folk artist Earl Black combines brushwork, color, line and shape to create works that are emotionally charged and idiosyncratic.
His body of work revolves around two interrelated themes...
- Everyday life experiences in and around Brooklyn
- Inner life projections -- memories, nights at the opera, sushi dinners.
I try to render subjects plainly, in free hand, with abandon and reliant on happy accidents -- immediate, vibrant and brimming with personality.
