Rashid Johnson's work references the new African-American experience, exploring the complexities behind race, class, and cultural identity. Crosshair Brand is a sculpture in two parts that presents a tool Johnson uses to mark the surfaces of many large-scale paintings on red oak, along with a small base also in red oak, and marked in a similar manner. Although the shape of the brands in his paintings may take on many different abstract and representational forms—including circles, diamonds, and palm trees—the crosshair is a recurrent motif throughout his most recent work.
