Jerome Lagarrigue, Derrick's Truth

Be sure not to miss Jerome Lagarrigue’s portrait show in the RISD Illustration Studies gallery. Eighteen vibrant paintings done on linen and paper, each depicts a single person – primarily black, largely male – though there’s quite a lot of variation between individual pieces. The larger paintings are the most effective, particularly tired-eyed Derrick – I believe it’s the great painter Derrick Adams – and the bespectacled Mister Gandy looming eight feet high. There are some colorful splashes, atomic peach skies and random cake frosting pinks, but the face is a swirling void at the center of the aptly titled Anybody’s Guess.
