Details:Nigerian-born, Los Angeles-based artist Njideka Akunyili Crosby has described her desire as an artist to “center Black life, my experience as a Black woman, and the complexity of Black life—and to infuse every piece I make with…this deep love I have for my Black experience.” This intimate exhibition presents four recent paintings on paper by Akunyili Crosby, the largest of which, Still You Bloom in This Land of No Gardens, depicts the artist holding her young child on the back porch of her home, enveloped by lush plants and vines. She decided to create this work to counter the relative absence of representations of loving Black mothers in art, to make “the images I wish to see.” The other three paintings in the exhibition are new works shown publicly for the first time at the Blanton. All prominently feature Akunyili Crosby’s distinctive photo-transfer technique using reproductions culled from a vast image bank of photographs of her family in Nigeria; magazine spreads depicting notable Nigerian athletes, models, and musicians; and Vlisco fabric catalogues she has amassed “as a way of staying connected to home.”
