Lehmann Maupin present Todd Gray - On Point
Wed-Sat: 10-6pm; Sun: 10-4pm
Working between Los Angeles and Akwidaa, Ghana, Gray's photo-based work aims to destabilise assumptions about the veracity of photography and provoke reconsiderations of long-accepted norms and beliefs about the medium.
The artist's lush photo assemblages are composed of images ranging from imperial European gardens, Baroque architecture, and Ghanian landscapes, to rock icons, seascapes, and portraits of the artist himself, all carefully arranged to create critical juxtapositions that examine ideas of African diaspora, colonialism, societal power structures, and dominant cultural beliefs.
Often rendered on an immersive scale - with the largest to date spanning over 30 feet- Gray's entrancing photo sculptures are infused with a cerain subversive beauty, reflecting his strong sense of visual aesthetics.
