From Talley Dunn Gallery:
“Talley Dunn Gallery is distinctly honored to announce the representation of one of Texas’ most celebrated and acclaimed mixed media artists Letitia Huckaby. To mark this occassion, an exhibition of recent works by the artist And Thy Neighb(our) will open at the gallery September 18.
Trained as a photographer, Letitia Huckaby most often creates thought-provoking multimedia works that evoke a sense of history and place. Whether carefully printed on flour sacks or tenderly held within embroidery hoops, Huckaby’s vividly resonant images of mundane scenes and everyday people are deeply involved in the histories and legacies of Black representation. Huckaby’s works that combine textiles and photography evoke longstanding and deeply personal African American folk art traditions such as quilting—in these works, the past touches the present. Challenging the traditional applications of the various media she adopts, the artist’s hand is always present in her use of the photographic image, stitched and sewn to weave topics of family, identity, faith, and community into the fibers of her thoughtful creations. “
