Description


Rico Gatson will exhibit paintings, sculpture, and videos that continue to investigate complex issues relating to identity and race. Based loosely on the notions of fractal geometry and indigenous design, Gatson links the African Diaspora and the intractability of a political/cultural matrix persistent throughout American history.The work contrasts ordered patterning with emotionally charged subjects. Using a palette limited to four colors, Gatson paints hard-edged patterns on wood panels and freestanding shapes that suggest African textile and folk design.
