While Hendricks has worked in variety of media and has examined diverse subject matter throughout his distinguished career, the focus of this exhibition is mainly his important figurative paintings made during the highly charged 1960s and 70s, when he explored and expressed themes of personal and cultural identity through iconic, stylish portraits, some of himself. The show also features lesser-known early works and the artist’s more recent plein air studies of the Jamaican landscape painted during his annual visits. Hendricks was born in 1945 in Philadelphia and trained at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. He earned his bachelor’s and master’s in fine arts from Yale University, and has been teaching art at Connecticut College since 1972. His work is represented in numerous public collections, including the National Gallery of Art; the Philadelphia Museum of Art; the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts; the Columbus Museum of Art; the Chrysler Museum; the Studio Museum in Harlem; the Yale University Art Gallery, and the Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University.
