............"The artist is of course Mr. Hammons, whose career is one
of the most stimulating and influential of the last four decades.
Although he is best known for his ephemeral objects and short-term
installations, often on themes related to African-American life, his
early work took the more concrete form of one-of-a-kind prints based
on impressions he made of his own body."
