Derrick Adams mixes vibrating patterns and rainbow hues to make the groovy spot where the central figure is Sitting Pretty. Wrapped in a polka dot bathrobe, the suave gentleman wears black wayfarer sunglasses and kicks his bare feet up to grin out at us through the screen. The frame of this print is a 1960’s television, complete with a faux-wooden finish and two dials for an authentic look. Derrick Adams’ work explores images that celebrate everyday joy in the African American community. Sitting Pretty showcases the subject at ease, enjoying himself in the sanctity of his home.
