Sedrick Huckaby
Just a Few Patches

About

In this 9 x 14 foot painting, Sedrick Huckaby focuses on a small section of a quilt, enlarging a small patch to a monumental scale. Sedrick Huckaby's paintings metaphorically express universal themes of faith, family, community, and heritage. Huckaby focuses on the subjects of quilts and portraits in his quest to glorify everyday people. About this painting, "Just a Few Patches," Sedrick Huckaby said: "I was thinking about a story about George Washington Carver as a scientist. He was searching for the secrets of the universe. The story goes that God revealed to him, “I can’t show you all the mysteries of the universe, you couldn’t take that. But I’ll show you the peanut.” And so the story goes that George Washington Carver went on to make all these discoveries in his study of the peanut. I’m dealing with quilts. What happens if you take a look at "just a few patches?" What can be discovered? Maybe there’s a world just looking at a few patches." This painting was included in the exhibition "Portraits of Community: Hidden in Plain Sight" at the Walton Arts Center in Fayetteville, Arkansas, from September 12, 2014 through January 3, 2015, and is on the cover of the exhibition catalogue. Several installation photographs from that exhibition are shown here, including a photograph of the artist standing in front of this painting (all photographs by Stephen Ironside.) The final photograph is the exhibition wall text from the Walton Arts Center, which provides further information about Huckaby's work. Sedrick Huckaby’s work has entered the permanent collections of numerous museums including African American Museum, Dallas; Amon Carter Museum of American Art; Art Institute of Chicago; Minneapolis Institute of Arts; Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University; Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art; Tyler Museum of Art; and the Whitney Museum of American Art.
