Barkley Hendricks was always ahead of his time. His work touches upon many of the movements of the ’60s and ’70s–Pop art, photorealism, minimalism, black nationalism–but he always did his own thing and avoided easy categorization. His groundbreaking work is as fresh today as it was 30 and 40 years ago and a generation of young artists is deeply indebted to him.
