THIS MAN’S WORK
In one painting a black woman wears a white, knee-length, feathery skirt paired with red Adidas tennis shoes and a red Adidas windbreaker. She is standing fierce, firm on the ground in a soldier-like pose. This is the work of Houston-based artist Robert Pruitt, which he presents through nearly 20 large-scale drawings in the Studio Museum exhibit titled “Women.” It combines elements of science fiction, hip-hop culture, and comic books. Pruitt, known for his multimedia work, examines the historical and contemporary experiences of African-Americans and has shown in various museums, and at the Whitney Biennial.
