Fever Within: The Art of Ronald Lockett, edited by Bernard L. Herman

Fever Within: The Art of Ronald Lockett, edited by Bernard L. Herman

Ronald Lockett (1965–1998) stands out among southern artists in the late twentieth century. Raised in the African American industrial city of Bessemer, Alabama, Lockett explored a range of recurring themes through his art: faith, the endless cycle of life, environmental degradation, historical events, the sweetness of idealized love, mourning, human emotion, and personal struggle. By the time Lockett died at age thirty-two, he had created an estimated four hundred works that document an extraordinary artistic evolution. This book offers the first in-depth critical treatment of Lockett’s art, alongside sixty full-color plates of the artist’s paintings and assemblages, shedding light on Lockett’s career and work. Contributors include Paul Arnett, Sharon Patricia Holland, Katherine L. Jentleson, Thomas J. Lax, and Colin Rhodes.
