The Artwork of Devin Lovett featured in
the Annual Augusta Black History Exhibition 2024

Devin Lovett’s most recent works are centered on identity. He portrays the black American identity in its infancy by emphasizing the skin tones and leaving the clothing negative to reflect the stripping away of the original African based identity leaving the figure with only its vibrant hue. The figures are blindfolded to drive home the sense of uncertainty for this new culture’s future in the same way African slaves were constantly uncertain of their own survival in this new foreign land.


These works, as part of Devin’s series Immaculate, were part of a body of work created during his artists residency with Westobou at the Gertrude Herbert Institute of Art.
