Strange Bloom #8
DIMENSIONS 14" x 11" MEDIUM Mixed media on paper
Unique work in a series of 10, 2018
Signed en verso
Vaughn Spann works between figuration and abstraction, utilizing a sculptural sense of materiality to examine the symbiosis of formal elements. Simple, everyday materials transcend in their combinations to "...allow me to investigate the potential for what I consider metamorphic organic poetry," he notes. He works with the intent of critiquing past and present art histories that have excluded black experiences and upending these narratives. With his series Strange Bloom, Spann presents vibrant ecosystems of color and space. With his marks, the botanical subjects develop a bodily texture, echoing hair or muscle as much as leaf or flower.
Each piece was made by the artist in his studio.
