Sedrick Huckaby Art

American

Sedrick Huckaby's large-scale paintings draw inspiration from his family history and his African-American roots. Born in Fort Worth, Texas, Huckaby received his BFA from Boston University in 1997 and his MFA from Yale University in 1999.

Huckaby has taught as a professor at Tarrant County College in Fort Worth and currently is a professor of water media at the University of Texas in Arlington. He has been honored as a Fellow at the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown, at the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, as a Kate Neal Kinley Memorial Fellow at the University of Illinois, and as a Brandeis Mortimer Hays Traveling Fellow, which gave him the opportunity to study the works of European masters abroad.

Huckaby’s own work has been included in exhibitions at the Studio Museum in Harlem and the Park Avenue Armory in Manhattan, at the African American Museum in Dallas, at the San Angelo Museum of Fine Arts in Texas, and at the Hammonds House Museum in Atlanta. His work A Love Supreme, comprising pieces forming an 80-foot long painting of quilts created by his grandmother, celebrates both jazz and quiltmaking as central elements of African-American culture. It serves as a foundation for his Guggenheim Fellowship project: to explore and paint the tradition of quiltmaking around the United States, and to add some of those paintings to A Love Supreme to more fully realize his intention in that installation.

Huckaby's work is included in the collections of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York City, the African American Museum in Dallas, and the Kansas African American Museum in Wichita. He is the recipient of the Louis Comfort Tiffany Award and the Imagination Celebration Spirit of the Future Award, among others.

Untitled (Letitia, pregnant with Rising Sun)
By Sedrick Huckaby
Located in Fairlawn, OH
Untitled (Letitia, pregnant with Rising Sun) Graphite on paper, 2005 Signed: "Sedrick Huckaby III" lower right (see photo) In April 2008, Huckaby was awarded a Guggenheim fellowship for "stellar achievement and exceptional promise for continued accomplishment" Provenance: Valley House Gallery, the artist's dealer for many years Inv. #12949 Image size: 6 3/4 x 10 inches Sedrick Huckaby (b. 1975) Born in Fort Worth in 1975, Huckaby has been creating some form of art since his childhood. In 1995, he began his formal art studies at Texas Wesleyan University in Fort Worth. After a brief stay he transferred to Boston University, where he received a BFA degree. He then earned a MFA degree from Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut. Huckaby is known for his powerful use of color and his exploration of cultural roles and the heritage of the African American family. His work has evolved from portraiture to objects and interiors that venerate his personal family legacy rooted in Fort Worth, Texas. Portraying these familiar subjects on a large scale and pushing his use of materials, Huckaby defines the significance of family and tradition while touching on the subject of ethnographic stereotypes in our culture. For the past few years he has concentrated his efforts on a series of quilt paintings. One of the series he created is a tribute to both of his Grandmothers and a celebration of the African American quilting tradition. He used the actual quilts sewn by family members as models for his paintings. These quilts document significant events in his family history. According to Huckaby, the paintings represent an artistic family legacy. The colorful, rhythmic abstracted patterns come together like the musical notes in African American musician John Coltrane's famous jazz composition, A Love Supreme, from which the painting series acquired its name. He has earned national acclaim for his work over the past several years. Huckaby has received the 2001 Louis Comfort Tiffany Award...
