Homecoming, Part 6 - Leo Twiggs' Art
Leo Twiggs has certain recurring themes in his work.
Twiggs has a series called the Hurricane Hugo series. Twiggs states, "The hurricane series became more than just a series about the wind. When I started doing it, it translated into... the adversity that African Americans have to overcome, and it was standing fast in the face of all that adversity. Then I thought, the adversity that all of us have... you know, that we have to stand fast, that nature... presents adversity... humans, other humans, present adversity."
Green and Twiggs are sons of the South with messages and meanings influenced by their heritage, refined through their memories, and reflected through their artwork.
