In honor of the exceptional contributions Norman Lewis (1909 – 1979) and Richard Hunt (1935 – ) have made to their respective genres, Bill Hodges Gallery is proud to present an exhibition of historic works by these seminal artists. Norman Lewis & Richard Hunt celebrates two major artists of the 20th and 21st century, distinguished for their fluency in abstraction. Placing in dialogue twenty-two works, a portrait of abstract art emerges; one that has been indelibly shaped by the brilliance of Black artists. Showcasing the inventive quality of modern and contemporary art, this exhibition urges viewers to consider the unique position Black artists have occupied within the development of abstraction. With Hunt’s agile, insightful sculptures of welded metals and Lewis’ titanic canvases of vivid color; this exhibition traverses a lively topography of artistic expression; rendered through the visual language of shape, form, color and line.
