About

"To Bunny" is brilliant painted in reds, blues, and pinks with a dash of yellow. It is lively and exuberant in the shape of a heart with Loving's well-known swirl motif throughout. It is signed and dated on verso with the inscription: "To Bunny as part of a happy marriage." Bunny is Al brother Paul daughter. This work is mounted on a Pexiglass structure and stands 3 inches from the wall. Alvin Demar Loving, Jr. better known as Al Loving, Detroiter, was an African-American abstract expressionist painter. His work is known for hard-edge abstraction, fabric constructions, and large paper collages, all exploring complicated color relationships. This is an abstract expressionist piece that soon dominated his art. He was the first African American to exhibited a solo show at the Whitney Museum of American Art and has received National Endowment for the Arts fellowships in 1970, 1974, and 1984. In 1986 Loving was awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship. Loving created large-scale commissioned public works throughout his career for The First National Bank Building in Detroit, MI, for the Empire State Collection in Albany, NY, a ceramic mural in one of Detroit's People Mover stations, and another in the Library at Wayne State University. In 1996, he created a collage painting Sacramento New Morning for the Sacramento Convention Center, and in 2001 he designed 70 stained-glass windows and mosaic walls for the Broadway Junction subway in Brooklyn.
