Mackey's work, such as this one, is characterized by his depictions of people and faces. The lines of this painting give a sense of movement and energy to the work which was something Mackey often aimed to show in his art. The Detroit-based artist was self-taught and provided inspiration and guidance for his grandson, Detroit artist Tyree Guyton.
