Hurvin Anderson: Backdrop features the many studies, photographs, and collages that provide the foundation for Anderson’s painting. It illuminates Anderson’s sophisticated use of photography and collage to construct complex spaces. Intuitive and instinctual, the artist overlays images to suture fragmented memories and complicate the legibility of remembrance. Backdrop encapsulates Anderson’s broad practice and elucidates the importance of his unique voice in our contemporary era.
