Preview: Greg Gossel "Weathering the Storm" @ Soo Visual Arts Center, MinneapolisJuxtapoz // Thursday, 26 Jul 2012
Greg Gossel, a former featured artist and someone we have been lucky to see show in our homebase of San Francisco quite a few times, is opening a new exhibition, Weathering the Storm, at the Soo Visual Arts Center in Minneapolis this Saturday, July 28. The show will feature 13 new large-scale works on paper and canvas, built upon a collection of scraps torn off old billboards and street advertisements in Minneapolis, Chicago, and New York. These elements are then layered, painted, torn, stained, and weathered away revealing a new context and composition within each piece. He explores media manipulation and exploitation with a keen skill and polish that celebrates as it simultaneously condemns.
