Finding Hidden Treasures: The Art of Samuel Adoquei


This is the first museum retrospective of artist Samuel Adoquei (b. 1964), a Ghanaian-born, New York-based painter who has shown work in museums and galleries across the United States. Adoquei’s major portraits and history paintings are at once ambitious, provocative, and technically masterful. His power lies below the surface of his compositions. Whether depicting a stately tree, a vase full of flowers, or a distinctively featured face, he seizes the spirit of his subject matter, powerfully. Finding Hidden Treasures will feature almost 30 works by Adoquei, including his significant 10’-wide triptych The Legacy and Burial of Martin Luther King, a painting featured in the New York Times and displayed at the S. Dillon Ripley Center of the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, DC.
