Dana Robinson “Ebony Reprinted” Opening
June 1, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm
Dana Robinson is a multidisciplinary artist who combines, reproduces and deconstructs, vintage materials, found objects, and paint to address the topics of youth, black female identity, ownership and nostalgia. “Using images that circulated in printed advertisements I remove traces of exploitative white dominated capitalist visual language allowing the individuals in these images to regain their agency in the world,” explains Robinson. “As the images are translated into paint, and that paint is intently smeared, pressed, and textured, the human beings at the center of these manipulative images become at once more abstract and exponentially more present.”
This exhibition will be on display from June 1 – 29.
