A Bit of 'Sleepwalking' with Greg Gossel

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, 29 Jun 2010

Gossel takes a look at the consumerist practice that projects biased perceptions of gender, race, and culture. “This collection points out specific imagery from collective memory of the past 50 years including the confederate flag, 1960s race riots, comic book superheroes, pro wrestling, the Reagan war on drugs, and 8 bit video games.”

 

Gossel's richly layered works can get massive in size, but also work well on a smaller scale. The colors pop, the finished work is clean, and the effect makes us want to stare into the future via reflecting upon our collective past.

 

If you aren’t able to make it out before the closing of Sleepwalking this Saturday, July 3rd, take a virtual tour here.
