NEW YORK—From the figure with purple hair to the abstract canvases and model-sized, paint-strewn structure—liberal use of color is a common thread through the eclectic mix of new works by Andro Wekua on exhibit at Gladstone Gallery.
The gallery describes the collection thus: “Working in a diverse array of media, Wekua has developed a visual language grounded in the exploration of human experience through the subtle intersections of individual and collective memory, personal identity, and history. Looking to genres such as fantasy, science fiction, and horror, Wekua creates fantastical and often macabre tableaux, revealing the complex processes of reconstruction and fragmentation that continually inform the personal, social, and fictive experience of remembrance.”
“Dreaming Dreaming” is on view at Gladstone’s West 24th Street space from Sept. 21 to Nov. 3, 2012.
