Kerry James Marshall Who's Afraid of Red, Black and Green
Who's Afraid of Red, Black and Green links a color field painting of Barnett Newman of the same title with the pan African flag colors of Black Power and Civil Rights movement. What I really love about Marshall's work is his ability to engage with the history of painting and all its biases and still maintain a luscious dialogue with the material and pleasure of paint itself.
