Art Opening “The Luxury of Beings Black” by Bryan Keith Thomas

From Bryan Keith Thomas:
“The theme of my current work is the celebration of the black experience through it’s a historic symbols; cotton, roses, and the African an African-American image. The small cloth bags (heirloom bags), adorning many of the paintings are placed there to hold the spiritual and physical memories of the ancestor. The bags contain; seeds, money, crystals, hair, prayer cloths and more. Growing up in the south, I remember how southern matriarchs adorned and tailored white dresses and glowing ebony skin, simply by standing in the doorway, could exude a presence that would completely envelop the room. They celebrated the luxury of being – black; southern, and eternal icons. It is the respectability of the human figure, residing in a holy moment that I wish to engage the viewer.”
