The Reader | New Orleans | 2014/2010

New and old pieces by The Reader, one of our favorite artists. It appears the wall in the first one may have actually been assembled for the purpose of painting. The first one is quite recent and the second one ain’t dere no more.

Painter painting in our land pictures of only white angels
Painter painting in our time in shadows of yesterday

Painter, if you paint with love, paint me some black angels now
For all good blacks in heaven, painter show us that you care
