THOMAS BLACKSHEAR COLLECTION
The Thomas Blackshear Collection depicts a full range of emotions that are both powerful and at the same time subtle. He deliberately portrays figures in a timeless setting in order to transcend a specific time, place, or culture.
This unique collection of limited edition figurines emphasizes the beauty of the human form and symbolizes universal aspirations and ideals of humankind depicted through images that reflect the unique characteristics of the African American culture.
For centuries classical beauty has been portrayed predominantly by white artisans who represent white subjects in their art. In this romantic and subtle tour de force, Thomas Blackshear creates a new vision of beauty and human emotion.
Thomas Blackshear's incredible sense of design, unique eclectic style, and extraordinary mastery of color. Elegant drapery and delicate detail tantalize the eye while revealing each sculpted form.
