By Barkley L. Hendricks


In his Basketball series, Hendricks applied his keen compositional sense and stylish use of color to depictions of the sport's essential elements: hoops, nets, backboards and, of course, basketballs themselves. In one painting, the image of a basketball about to make its way into a hoop is repeated twice on a round canvas; on another circular canvas, the iconic black ribs of a basketball are rendered in a bold orange to create a minimalistic yet instantly recognizable pattern.
