The first thing you notice when you walk into an exhibition of or see the works of Njideka Akunyili Crosby in person is that you are looking at works on paper. And the care and level of detail she applies to such a strong and yet delicate surface. But that is the entire point: these are tender moments and delicate subjects but done upon a resilient surface. Using acrylic, colored pencil, pastel, charcoal, and transfers on paper as her method, and the wonderful paper clip-style hanging she utilizes, these are special presentations, a nod that memories are often put down on paper and therefore the visual tapestry of our existence can be put down as such.
