Foreword by Camille Mary Weiner.
Published on the occasion of Otis Kwame Kye Quaicoe’s critically lauded first exhibition at Roberts Projects (January 11 – February 29, 2020), this catalogue features new work that marks a critical evolution for the artist. His richly textured paintings, rendered ecstatically in pure pigmented color, convey the complexities of the diasporic experiences of both himself and the people whose portraits are captured within. In Black Like Me, Quaicoe illuminates his approach to painting as an exploratory vehicle for self-reflexive commentary while engaging with the history of the medium.
