About this title

Synopsis:

In his art Jonathan Green paints the world of his childhood and an ode to a people imbued with a profound respect for the dignity and value of others - the Gullah people of the South Carolina barrier islands. His vibrant canvases, beloved for their sense of jubilation and rediscovery, evoke the meaning of community in Gullah society and display a reverence for the rich visual, oral, and spiritual traditions of its culture. His art reveals a keen awareness of the interpersonal, social, and natural environments in which we live.

From Booklist:

The Gullah population of South Carolina's barrier islands descends from the people of West Africa's Gold Coast. Most of the barrier islands did not have transportation to the mainland until 1940; some still don't. This isolation guaranteed that the Gullah would experience little North American acculturation. Jonathan Green was born into this society and, through his paintings, has become one of its chroniclers. The more than 180 handsomely reproduced paintings included here capture the vibrancy of the Gullah community. Many of Green's subjects--weddings, funerals, cooking, storytelling--possess a timeless quality, but there are other more contemporary scenes, too, including a blues singer and a group of sunbathers. Whatever their subject, Green's paintings are marked by a richness of tone and spirit and an energy that reaches out from the canvas. As author Pat Conroy says in his introduction, "The Gullah people depicted in Jonathan Green's world look as if they got dressed while staring at rainbows." Informative essays about Gullah history and life add to the book's considerable appeal. Ilene Cooper
