Homage to the poet Langston Hughes

Homage to the poet Langston Hughes

In this film Peter Clarke talks about his work, Homage to the poet Langston Hughes. It is dedicated to the American poet and social activist who was recognised for his contribution to the ‘Harlem Renaissance’ and was an important influence on the artist.

A four-colour lithograph print of Homage to the poet Langston Hughes after the original hand-coloured linocut in the artist’s personal collection has been produced to celebrate Peter Clarke’s ‘Wind Blowing on the Cape Flats’ exhibition. It depicts an outstretched single hand, reaching towards a dove, suggesting a yearning for peace or solidarity.
