A southern African American artist from Bessemer, Alabama, Ronald Lockett (1965-1998) had created some four hundred works before he died at age 32; this catalog includes 60 plates of his work, and several essays. Lockett explored a range of recurring themes through his art: faith, the endless cycle of life, environmental degradation, historical events, the sweetness of idealized love, mourning, human emotion, and personal struggle.
