Quilt Paintings by Sedrick Huckaby

The Tyler Museum of Art is proud to present a selection of oil paintings by Sedrick Huckaby, a Texas artist who uses thick, impasto paint to create his shape-shifting quilt murals, evocative of tradition, family and his own grandmother, “Big Momma.” Huckaby was born and raised in Fort Worth, and earned his BFA at Boston University and MFA at Yale University’s School of Art.

After graduating, Huckaby studied art in western Europe for two years before returning to Fort Worth. Today, he lives next door to his childhood home (where his parents still live) with his wife and fellow artist Carita Letitia Huckaby. Beyond formal study, it is family and faith that guides Huckaby’s artistic vision, imparting a universal and yet extremely personal tone expressed in many portraits of his family members, especially his grandmother who recently passed away.
A Love Supreme is one of the artist’s largest works, totaling 80 feet in length. Heavy, dense paint expresses the fold, texture and weight of his grandmother’s quilts. Divided into four sections that are categorized by season (Fall, Winter, Spring and Summer), A Love Supreme is a tour de force in painterly sophistication but also approachable to any viewer. In addition to A Love Supreme, this exhibition consisting of all quilt paintings, showcases the artist’s latest accomplishments.
This exhibition was organized by the Tyler Museum of Art.
