For 40 years, Al Loving experimented with materials and process to expand the definition of modern painting, drawing on everything from free jazz to his family’s quilting tradition. In the 1980s, Loving broke free of the flat image, using heavy rag paper to make three dimensional collages in brilliant colors. Spiral Play features 12 of these collages, some of them monumental in scale. The work is radical, beautiful, and deeply human. In the artist’s words, “I chose the spiral as a symbol of life’s continuity. It became an overall wish for everyone.”
This exhibition presents approximately 20 works that illustrate the honored place birds hold within numerous African cultures. Inspired by our recent acquisition of a rare Pende Gitenga mask of the early to mid-20th century, the exhibition considers the role of birds within initiation, healing, and harvest rituals; within home décor and security; and within hunting practices. Long considered wondrous beings that transcend known worlds, birds have enjoyed a strong and steady presence in African life for centuries.
