Red Earth Series: 4/10

Clyde Connell began showing her work in Shreveport in the 1960s. She made her reputation in New York in the 1980s. Connell was embraced as one of the last contemporary artists, and one of the few native-born U.S. artists, to use authentic primitive imagery to express surrealist-derived Abstract Expressionist principles. Connell had her first major one-person exhibition in 1981 at New York’s influential Clocktower Gallery. Her work was also notably included in Different Drummers, a 1988 exhibition at the Hirshhorn Museum in Washington D.C.
