DESCRIPTION


Louisville-based artist Russel Hulsey has embarked on a 4-part series titled Verses, an homage through portraiture to some of the world's most famous poets. Both vivid and spontaneous, these works capture the persona of the authors depicted both in likeness and the embodiment of their verse.

Completed in 2008, the first of the series, 19th Century Poets, includes Walt Whitman, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry David Thoreau, and Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. Also on exhibit is the artist's most recent series, The Beat Poets, which features Allen Ginsberg, Gary Snyder, Bob Dylan, and Jack Kerouac.
