Vaquero Moderno by B.C. Gilbert
January 4 – February 20, 2019
RECEPTION: Friday, January 4, 2019
The work which I create is a culmination of several factors including, but not limited to, situations past and present, references to nostalgic tendencies, environmental surroundings of popular culture (specifically my own), and an obsession with the depiction of Americana in a nontraditional and unpredictable format.
Through these means and using the mediums of painting and printmaking, as well as the devices of construction, found objects, and even premeditated environments similar to installations, it is my desire and focus to reinvent and reinterpret pre-conceived stereotypes and to pose and suggest those question’s for the supposed audience.
The collective of work shown here is a retrospective of sorts and is representative of art created during the years of 2003-2016.
