Ulysses Marshall: The Spirit Within

Ulysses Marshall: The Spirit WithinUlysses Marshall’s compositions come from the treasured stories that his mother and grandmother (Momma Joe and Momma Gussie) told. They represent the rich history of African American culture and focus on showing the individual’s dignity and pride through his or her journey. With an expressionistic style and through the use of various materials such as newspaper, magazine cutouts, cardboard and pieces of wood on canvas, Marshall creates his subject matter in an amalgam of colors, shapes and symbols. His artwork is intuitive -in a style that can be.
