Truth and Identity: Questions for the Self in Works by Gary Chapman

Jan. 17 – May 16

Viewed through the lenses of popular culture, identity politics, and religious and social environments, this exhibition explores Chapman’s search for an ultimate “truth” in one’s identity. It follows the artist’s pursuit through paintings and mixed media works titled: The Helmet Series, Children Searching, Adults Searching, Related Incidents, and The Altars.

Chapman juxtaposes and layers images and objects that suggest moments in time. These pursuits stem from his own concerns about his place in the world. His search echoes the modern world filtered through social media, and popular media, as well
