In 11 paintings created over the last three years, the Memphis-born artist examines the dubious nature of belonging and home for African Americans in his Blue Sky Series. The environments he creates with human and plant life subjects convey a shared space, not a shared experience. Brisco’s selection of companion Audubon etchings addresses time’s fluidity – the effect over the years on an art object and our understanding of the 19th-century artist.
Considering homophones roots and routes, Kevin Brisco: Migratory Roots explores shared movements, journeys over time and the network that exists among all living things.
The artist reminds us of this: no two moments or concepts are identical nor experienced the same.
