Stephon Senegal

Stephon Senegal sculpture’s are cerebral. Wood, photography and metal and steel,and relics of subjugation. Beatus #3 has what looks to be a steel mechanism emblazoned with the word “negro.” A remnant from our unfortunate history of Slavery? Propel the conversation forward, while bringing beauty into the world, Artist Stephon Senegal does a great job of striking that balance. See his work at N Namdi Miami.(Stephon Senegal website Stephon Senegal Instagram)

Stephen Arboite

Haitian artist, Stephen Arboite, born and educated in NYC. His works focus on the healing power of dreams, and this is evident when you view the work. Monotone, using coffee to convey these messages of healing, His works invite the viewer to participate in their mental and emotional healing, and elevating consciousness.

Neha Vedpathak

Neha Vedpathak = GREAT color. Even pieces with much white space, have powerful and interesting colors. Her “plucked paper” began in 2009, Japanese papers with separated the fibers. She describes the laborious process as meditative, and the results are beautiful. India born and educated, living in USA since 2000’s and maintaing a studio in Detroit.

Gregory Coates

Gregory Coates(1961), an African American Multi disciplary artist from Washington, DC. Coates was working primarily as a figurative painter, until Artist Al Loving encouraged him to expand his artistic practice into sculpture and assemblage. Gregory has also created several installations on multiple continents. I find his works beckon that of early Rauschenberg, inventive, ingenuitive, and cerebral. Stunning color palettes and juxtaposition of materials, textures. This leaves the viewer inspired and interested. Gregory Coates is obviously an excellent artist.( Gregory Coates Instagram)

Ed Clark

Abstract Painter Edward Clark (1926-2019), known for large, colorful, bold strokes. Using push brooms to achieve these results. Also, his shaped canvas(ie using a circle, instead of a square shape). Born in Storyville area of New Orleans, the vibrant spirit of the city is evident. Educated at Art Institute Chicago, and now his works art part of their Permanent collection.(Ed Clark website Ed Clark Instagram)

Nanette Carter

Columbus, Ohio Born and living in NYC, working as Adjunct Professor at the Pratt institute. She coined herself a “scapeologist,” her abstracts represent of imagined landscapes, and the mysteries of nature. Her series “Cantilevered” speaks to the social media bombardment of information via social media, and the resultant anxiety. Interesting colors palettes and juxtaposition. (Nanette Carter website Nanette Carter Instagram)

Deborah Dancy

Deborah Dancy, raised in Chicago, and earning her BFA from Illinois Wesleyan, her MFA from Illinois state. Working at “edges of struggle and discovery. I take pleasure in moving paint around until something holds my interest and interrupt any assumptions about what it should become.” Her work is clearly about the process, and letting the work happen. Light pastels, and varying gray shades are common themes whihc you can view At N'namdi.(Deborah Dancy website Deborah Dancy Instagram)

Sargent Claude Johnson was a family friend. Drafted into the Military at 1948. Colescott had his first show in Portland in 1963.
