Synopsis

Going Back Home An Artist Returns to the South by Toyomi Igus

More than half a century after her family moved North to find a better life, artist Michele Wood returned to the South to see and experience the land where her ancestors lived, struggled, and thrived. In Going Back Home, Michele presents a series of paintings inspired by this personal journey. Through her complex and richly patterned art, Michele places herself back in history, imagining her ancestors' struggles to overcome hardship through family love and community.

Reviews

The full-page, full-color reproductions are arrestingly beautiful and haunting. Youngsters can use Wood's stunning artwork as a starting point to explore and weave their own family tales.
