Curator’s comments

Field Hands shows an African-American person bent over with an arched back, holding and studying a plant. The image of the bent-over figure has become an icon of sorts in Robinson's recent work in the form of rag studies, and it is a symbol for the backbreaking work African Americans have endured.
