The Journey: Kenya
Andre Henderson and Doug Pisik
(Atlanta, GA / Marietta, GA)
Acrylic on plywood, charred reclaimed lumber, rusted spikes
2018 – 2019
This piece painted by Andre Henderson and mounted by Doug Pisik is part of Henderson’s series ‘The Journey”, which depicts an otherworldly serenity that is visually incongruent with the intolerable travesty that was endured by men, women, and children who simultaneously lost their lives and recaptured their freedom in the depths of the ocean during the horrid transport from Africa tot the Americas.
