Terron Cooper Sorrells

Working with forgotten, overlooked, and ignored narratives of African-American history, life, and culture, Sorrells creates large-scale paintings that envelop viewers in a mix of contemporary and historical stories. His work becomes a collective portrait of what it means to be Black in America today while celebrating this rich, diverse, and beautiful culture. Through his visual language of mythological, religious, and iconic imagery, Sorrells challenges our day-to-day perceptions of African Americans and how their history gets written. And while his dramatic images are raw and vulnerable, they ultimately radiate his people's strength and resilient spirit.
