About Earl Black
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.
