They're here...my roses have arrived!
Soaking the roots in preparation for planting
Speaking of roots, batik artist Leo Twiggs has deep roots in South Carolina. Those roots inspire his work...addressing themes including "race, black culture, politics and relationships between generations."
With degrees from Clafin University, New York Universtiy and a doctorate in Art Education from the University of Georgia, Mr. Twiggs developed the Fine Art Department at South Carolina State University.
A common theme in his work is the confederate flag. By painting these flags he "denied whites a monopolistic hold on this icon of exclusiveness...simply by painting it."
