Meet Alabama native Ken "Blacktop" Gentle at the Saturday reception for his collection of paintings that reflect his youth.
“My paintings tend to be personal and reflect my devotion and respect for people I have met or who have influenced my life. Many of the people I paint were not proud of their occupations or their station in life. Through a process of storytelling I try to show the humanity of these people – their internal beauty, the degradation and anger that they experienced in life, while invoking their heritage, their spirit and their environments.”
The show will be comprised of paintings on tar and based on people and places that Ken remembers growing up - church, cotton fields, wild life, bar-b-que joints, the Civil Rights Movement, southern urban and rural life.
