Kirk Hopper Fine Art will present Houston artist Floyd Newsum for his latest solo exhibition entitled, "The Things I See." This exhibit will feature Newsum’s newest and most ambitious work to date.

Newsum’s work is often filled with a signature combination of undulating marks and abstract patterns that take the form of glyphs alluding to Floyd’s own story and upbringing. His compositional style generally feels child-like; however, his subject matter centers on deeper meanings of cultural climates, political statements and personal events. His naïve style echos African culture and serves as a blended creation of spirit works and ancestral stories.

The contour line drawings of a floating woman in The Run and in Spirit and Serpent are prime examples. Floyd's use of the floating woman pays homage to the great women that have impacted his life; they become free floating spirits making their presence known to their viewer. It is no surprise that Floyd places such a strong emphasis on depicting women in his works; after all, women are the bearers of life, they nurture and protect.

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through November 4.
