Art In America

Robert Pruitt

at Studio Museum in Harlem,
144 West 125th Street, New York, New York

Houston-based Robert Pruitt's drawings, on crinkly brown butcher paper, some of which is hand-dyed, depict mostly young women attired in a mix of stylish street wear (track jackets, graphic tees, tight dresses) and perplexing headgear. In one portrait a woman pairs a galaxy-print tunic with a "hat," constructed from woven-together braids, resembling Vladimir Tatlin's Monument to the Third International; others don a gold-leaf Rubik's cube, a basket, a jug or various futuristic-looking pointed vessels.
