I am late to the party discovering the work of Whitfield Lovell.

From his most recent series: The Spell Suite.

After years of bringing us a series of unapologetic female african american nudes, MT has paused a moment and channeled…..matisse.

classic interior collage…

….21st century brooklyn style.

screen print. flocking. enamel paint. gold leaf. colored pencil.

oversized. minimally three feet by four feet.

I see one of these prints looking delicious in a stark modern monochromatic interior.

sign me up.

chic.

a few scenes from the devastatingly intelligent, soulful, ‘kitchen table series’.

i saw the full set of twenty at the guggenheim a few years ago. a friend of mine recently saw them at the national gallery.

and if you’re lucky enough…see them. they are powerful and fierce.
