Arcmanoro Niles

I WOULD HAVE LEFT ME TOO

2019
oil, acrylic, and glitter on canvas
16 x 20 inches

Arcmanoro Niles’ recent body of work depicts his subjects in vulnerable states of sadness and despair. Painted in bright hues accented with glittered passages, his scenes radiate with emotional intensity even when characters appear inert and reflective, seen here in I Would Have Left Me Too. The man stares blankly at the viewer (or himself in the mirror) in this potent image of a man in an utterly fragile state. Niles’ work is included in the collection of the Dallas Museum of Art; the David C. Driskell Center at the University of Maryland; the Petrucci Family Foundation Collection of African American Art; Phoenix Art Museum; and the Studio Museum in Harlem, and he is a recipient of the Joan Mitchell Foundation Painters & Sculptors Grant.
