Roscoè B. Thické III’s debut solo exhibition, ORDER MY STEPS: There are no answers here, move on focuses on a narrative rich body of work, detailing collective familial histories and community.
The exhibition is centered around the intersection of two deaths, that of the Pork N’ Beans project in Liberty City, and that of his grandmother. Through photography, Thicke investigates place as a means to remember and honor the lifespan of both.
About the Artist
Photographer, visual artist, community advocate, and father of three, Roscoè B. Thické III was born and raised in Miami, Florida. After graduating high school, Thické enlisted in the US Army to embark on a journey of exploration and transformation. The army provided Thické with the opportunity to see the world via his travels, but it would be a volunteer based photography class in South Korea, that would take Thické from amateur explorer of culture and customs, to the intentional, stirring, and impressive images we see of his work today. Thické pursued his passion for visual arts by studying photography and design at Broward College. His work is centered around the resilience of spirit, affliction of memory, and the art in “seeing”, as recognized in his exhibited work at The Bass Museum and The Art and Culture Center in Hollywood, Fla. Thické received the 2021 Ellies Creator award and is currently an artist-in-residence at Oolite Arts.
