Radcliffe Bailey is an Atlanta based artist recognized internationally for his painting, sculpture, and mixed media works that range in both material and style. Often Bailey incorporates found objects like piano keys, Georgia clay, sheet music, and African sculpture into his work. Known also to include relics of his own past-namely family tintypes-Bailey succeeds in creating works that are at once deeply personal and yet also universal. In many ways, his body of work addresses the human condition by exploring themes of ancestry, race, ethnic identity, and collective history.
