BLACK! is a provocative and visually rich exhibition which explores historically familiar, yet shifting and pervasive issues of modern American life. In his recent body of work, South Carolina artist Tyrone Geter combines his technical skill as a draftsman with an organic, experimental approach to the medium of paper, resulting in unique works whose formal character is both traditional and contemporary. His larger than life compositions often employ the human figure not only as a subject, but as a surface upon which his own nuanced observations of African American culture are inscribed and abstracted with an iconic, personal vocabulary, inviting us to question our place as individuals in the complex social fabric of society.
These works can be viewed in the Special Exhibit Gallery. The exhibition will be on display through August 9, 2016.
