Ebony G. Patterson : ...while the dew is still on the roses... Hardback

Edited by Maria Eugenia Hidalgo



In her celebrated drawings, tapestries, and sculptures, Ebony G.

Patterson incorporates glitter, appliques, pins, embellishments, fabric, tassels, brooches, pearls, and beads to tell haunting stories of violence, masculinity, and black youth culture.

Bringing together highlights from the artist's work from the past five years, this book features exquisite reproductions that illuminate the works' vibrantly intricate detail.

The book reveals the artist's poetic depictions of gardens as environments of beautiful sorrow.

Two accompanying essays offer an examination of Patterson's work and a discussion of gardens as a theme in art and literature over the centuries.
