Petrucci Family Foundation Collection of African American Art collects "I Cant't Breathe"
"Every generation has a phrase, a statement into history that helps define that time.
The Petrucci Family Foundation Collection is very pleased to have acquired this brush/text work by Felandus Thames. His brush/text works enshrine pertinent, colloquial, and tongue-in-cheek Af/Am cultural tropes. They are a subset of the larger body of potent conceptual art he produces.
Felandus Thames’ works of art are crafted with common materials and objects. His materials may be common, but Felandus’ art employs these common elements to produce personal and culturally lasting visual statements." ~ Berrisford Boothe
