About the work

American, b. 1962

Richly colorful, Beverly McIver’s autobiographical paintings form a chronicle of her life: her struggle with her African-American identity or her deep love for her mentally disabled sister, for whom she is caretaker. McIver does not shy away from the intimate or the revealing. In her numerous self-portraits, first as white faced (she thought to join the circus), then as black faced, and most recently in her own skin, she bares her psychological states in close-up, with highly expressive depictions both of herself and of those close to her.
