Henry Bermudez

"Influenced by Latin American and African mythology and folk art, in this exhibit Henry Bermudez creates wall-sized cut paper collages combined with giant cut-out photos featuring Kelicia Pitts, a fine art model and local curator. The installation also represents the latest art collaboration of Ms. Pitts’ ongoing The Kandy Project, in which she acts as the primary model/subject for a visual artist’s body of work."
