Celebrating Freedom by David Rubin

Book Description

Willie Birch has been documenting the vibrant African-American culture of his native New Orleans in large-scale drawings that emphasize body language, dress codes, and everyday rituals. His guileless polychrome ethnic sculptures evoke both social history and emotion. His use of talismans give the viewer a window to another time, be it through old construction nails symbolizing power and strength to a small West African papier-mache stool that stands apart as a symbol of nobility. "Celebrating Freedom" is the first volume to examine in detail the career of this influential artist and is accompanied by 60 fabulous full-colour photographs.
