Barbara Earl Thomas: The Illuminated Body

February 24 - August 20 2023

Chrysler Museum of Art 1 Memorial Pl, Norfolk, VA

Layers of luminous, jewel-colored paper pulse with life behind cut black-paper portraits made by Barbara Earl Thomas.

These new works by the celebrated artist, writer, and thinker meditate on the visual experience of the body within a physical and metaphorical world of light and shadow. Based on real people, the portraits “elevate to the magnificent” her family, friends, and neighbors, as well as cultural icons of the African American literary landscape.
