Artwork from Ernie Barnes

‘Late Night DJ’ 1978
Amongst his many works, Barnes completed a major commission inspired by Bill Withers’ hit Grandma’s Hands “He meant getting people to look past the superficial into the real vulnerable parts of themselves,” said Withers, “He wanted to help people peel away that layer of protection that we all wear to ward off any intrusion into our real private thoughts. He didn’t mind people looking deeper into him. I found that fascinating.”

Fascinating and inspiring indeed ! R.I.P Ernie – your magic lives on – Thanks for the many many memories.
