Trinidadian-American artist Gary Logan explores our unique relationship with the Earth and its elements through dramatic lighting, atmospheric ambiguity, vivid colors, and rich textures. Drawing visual and conceptual inspiration from both Taoism and the Romantic tradition in painting, Logan’s work evokes a sense of mystery, raw emotion, and the sublime
His landscape imagery is a means of navigating the complex terrain of identity and human nature, in order to speak to universal concerns such as oppression, freedom, race, sexuality, healing, and renewal.
Now through Jun. 30, 2019 (The Museum is closed on Mondays)
