Description

Here a box form echoes the earlier work of Joseph Cornell, allowing an aesthetic segue into certain mainstream trends, while also incorporating African American and African references, symbols, and iconology. This work, more lyrical and layered than Bailey’s earlier work, also seems to relate to the assemblage and collage traditions in the work of Robert Rauschenberg.
