Gerald Byrd’s semi-autobiographical works draw imagery from a history, both personal and shared. His own struggles within the African American community and the complex history of the south become nonlinear narratives in mixed media paintings. Photography and realism merge with bits of text, objects, and poetic gestures to reflect his collapsed vision of the past and present. Byrd hopes to raise awareness of the plight of the disadvantaged in the New South, elevating them to a place of dignity, inspiring empathy and appreciation to the viewer.
