Toronto-based artist Winnie Truong (featured on the cover of Hi-Fructose Vol. 22) began drawing unruly, prolific hair as a way to interrogate Western beauty standards. As her body of work evolved, her depictions of hair became more sculptural and intricate. Hair became the medium to test the bounds of form and line. Her latest colored pencil drawings place more emphasis on the abstract arrangements of waves and curls than on the hairstyle's wearer. Truong's current solo show, "Invisible/Visible" is on view at Erin Tump Projects in Toronto through December 20.
Photo: Ka-Man Tse for Times Square Arts Kehinde Wiley recently offered his first public work with the unveiling of "Rumors of War," a bronze sculpture first shown at Times Square in New York City. The piece was commissioned by the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts and will eventually be installed there. The work, with its contemporary African-American subject, stands in contrast to the Confederate statues that still populate the state that will serve as its permanent home. Wiley was our cover artist for Hi-Fructose Vol. 36.
Winnie Truong's explorations of the female form and its relationship to nature evolve with a new show at VivianeArt. The collection of mixed-media works, implementing colored pencil, pastel, and collage, are displayed under the title "Perennials." The show kicks off April 27 and runs through June 9. Truong was last featured on HiFructose.com here.
Four months after it was announced that Kehinde Wiley and Amy Sherald would be painting the presidential portraits for former President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama, the pieces have been unveiled. Wiley, who was the cover artist for Hi-Fructose Vol. 36, debuted a characteristically vibrant and absorbing portrait for the 44th President of the United States, seated against an overgrowth of flowers and foliage. Sherald’s striking painting of the former first lady implemented a dress with a design reminiscent of the work of Dutch abstract painter Piet Mondrian. Sherald was last mentioned on HiFructose.com here.
