Glenn Hardy Jr.

Glenn Hardy Jr.’s paintings depict Black life liberated from American racial stereotypes that depend on conflict. Deliberately darkening their skin tone, the artist creates idealized figures from his subjects in a style that draws from the work of Kerry James Marshall and Ernie Barnes. Hardy’s work chronicles the lives of Black people and Black voices, featuring scenes where joyous figures are comfortable, relaxed and triumphant.
