Radcliffe Bailey: New Mixed-Media Works 

Radcliffe Bailey likes to mix things up. His colorful mixed-media pieces sometimes seem to come from a place between time and space where the past encounters the present and the local finds the global in a colorful, multicultural gumbo. Bridging the divide between the abstract and the figurative, Bailey's most recent works are multilayered narratives that take their cues from the Underground Railroad and Marcus Garvey as well as the artist's own personal background. This melding of personal experience and world history is an essential part of his approach. As he puts it: 'Growing up, I spent a lot of time with my grandparents and great-grandparents, and I feel like that's lost in most families today. In my art, I try to restore some of the lost kinship between people." — D. Eric Bookhardt
