BADU - 2014 - OIL - CALIFORNIA AFRICAN AMERICAN MUSEUM

AS I AM IN NEOTIATIONS WITH TWO MAJOR 

WORLD-CLASS MUSEUMS, I AM INSPIRED TO REVISIT 

BADU, 2014, A TRIBAL/PRIMITIVISM ARTWORK

CREATED EXLUSIVELY FOR MY TWICE HELD OVER EXHIBIT

AT THE CALIFORNIA AFRICAN AMERICAN MUSEUM THAT

SUCCEEDED THE FINAL EXHIBIT OF GEOFFREY HOLDER

WHILE HE WAS STILL WITH US, ALONG WITH HIS BELOVED

CARMEN DE LAVALLADE. I CAN'T EXPRESS TO YOU HOW THAT

FELT BEING GEOFFREY AND CARMEN WAS ON THE BOARD OF 

A FASHION EVENT KILGOUR AND SWEET HAUTE COUTURE

PARTICIPATED IN AT THE FASHION INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY

UNDER THE TUTELAGE OF AUDREY SMALTZ. OUR DESIGNS

WERE WORN BY PAT CLEVELAND, BILLIE BLAIR AND IMAN,

WE ALSO DRESSED AUDREY TO THE HIGH COMPLIMENTS

OF EUNICE JOHNSON. HER HAIR, BY MR. FRENCHIE AND

MAKEUP BY ALFONSO GRUNDY. BACK TO BADU, SHE IS RENDERED

IN SENNELIER OIL DEVELOPED FOR PABLO PICASSO IN 1949.

IT MEASURES 36 INCHES WIDE AND 48 INCHES HEIGHT.

CURRENTLY I AM DEEPLY SUBMERGED IN TRIBALISM ARTWORKS

INTERMIXED WITH CUBISM AND NEOEXPRESSIONISM. AT TIMES,

A TOUCH OF FAUVISM. ABSTRACT FIGURATIVE. SUCH IS ART.
