While there were paintings, drawings, and sculpture, Roland Hagenberg's rare, very candid Basquiat photographs near Frank restaurant were displayed. The sophisticated black and white shots range from showcasing Basquiat's serious commitment to art, his stark intelligence, his overwhelming confidence, and his vulnerability.
Thus, I saw "Now's the Time" twice, lingering in a supreme validation that made my love for him blossom like fragrant flowers in a watered garden. Although solemn and silent, attached to walls, I heard his screams, his protests outlined in the strong, aggressive prowess of varied technical precision and powerful language.
And that incredible talent crowned my ardor with great sublime joy.
