SAM DOYLE: The Mind’s Eye

 SAM DOYLE: The Mind’s Eye

May 3 2014 - September 1 2014

The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) presents Sam Doyle: The Mind’s Eye - Works from the Gordon W. Bailey Collection, opening May 3 and continuing through September 1, 2014. Sam Doyle was born in 1906 on Saint Helena Island, South Carolina, the center of the region’s Gullah community where African cultural influences thrived. He began making paintings on cast-off sheet metal and wood panels in 1944; most were portraits of people and events important to his community. He placed the paintings in the yard of his clapboard house in a museum-like display. By the time Doyle retired in the late 1960s, his history lesson had evolved into the St. Helena Out Door Art Gallery and attracted the attention of LACMA’s former curator of twentieth-century art, Jane Livingston, who, at that time was Associate Director and Chief Curator at the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, DC. She invited Doyle to participate in Black Folk Art in America: 1930-1980, a seminal event that traveled and introduced the islander’s impassioned artwork to a much broader audience including artists such as Jean-Michel Basquiat — who collected Doyle’s works — and Ed Ruscha. The artist summed up momentous events with poetic simplicity and had a genius for distilling the essence of personality. His paintings are often so deftly executed that they achieve iconic status.
