Revisited History by Titus Kaphar

.

US Artist Titus Kaphar (40) is celebrated for producing paintings, drawings and installations that initiate a contemporary dialogue with history.

Marrying eighteenth- and nineteenth-century American portraiture with modernist gesture, Titus’s work deconstructs history and memory simultaneously, twisting familiar images to uncover those who’ve suffered under the prejudices institutionalized by the “heroes” we revere.
