The Dress by Whitfield Lovell evokes spiritually important life events and the loss or absence of someone important. Whitfield Lovell’s drawings, prints, and installations reference his own family as well as broader themes of African-American ancestry and cultural memory.
The Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh, the Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art in Winston-Salem, North Carolina and the Jersey City Museum have presented solo shows of Whitfield’s work. He is represented by D.C.Moore Gallery in NYC. He has received fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Joan Mitchell, Penny McCall, and New York Foundations.
