Jack Shainman Gallery has represented Radcliffe Bailey since 2002. Solo exhibitions in the gallery have included Maroons (2014), Outer Spaceways (2011),Altered Destiny (2007), and Meet Me by the River (2002).
Bailey was born in Bridgeton, New Jersey in 1968, and grew up in Atlanta, Georgia, where he currently lives and works today. Bailey received a BFA in 1991 from The Atlanta College of Art.
Radcliffe Bailey is a painter, sculptor, and mixed media artist who utilizes the layering of imagery, culturally resonant materials, and text to explore themes of ancestry, race, and memory. Bailey believes that by translating his personal experiences, he can achieve an understanding of, and a healing from, a universal history. His work is often made from found materials and certain pieces from his past, including traditional African sculpture, tintypes of his family members, piano keys, and Georgia red clay.
Radcliffe Bailey’s latest exhibition Quest runs through June 4th at the Jack Shainman Gallery in Chelsea.
