fete : [llyn foulkes]

llyn foulkes' art provides a social commentary on america that is both beautiful and brutally honest. our idols and superheros are minimized to brands and propaganda. llyn's show at the new museum this summer chronicled his work from the 1960s until today. he has evolved, from simple prints, to more recent multimedia pieces [in the paintings, using shirt fabric for shirts and hair for hair]. he paints. he draws. he composes jazz. he makes his own instruments. llyn foulkes = one man fete.
