"Afropick" by Sanford Biggers
Sanford Biggers (U.S.A., b. 1970) builds fantastical composite art objects, or creates images of them, to explore ideas born out of encounters between different cultures. The roughly six-foot-tall woodcut Afropick is the product of two traditions familiar to Biggers: African American political identity and Japanese printmaking. It explores and reinforces connections between race, the body, and political self-determination.
