DESCRIPTION

White Walls is pleased to present GODDAMN, the latest solo show by Minneapolis-based artist Greg Gossel. The opening reception will be held on June 14 from 7 pm to 11 pm. The exhibition will be on view through July 5, 2014 and is free and open to the public.

GODDAMN features over 50 new original works on canvas and wood panel, is the most painterly show by the artist to date, and utilizes a variety of mediums and techniques including silkscreen printing, handpainted acrylic and enamel, and expressive spray paint marking. In GODDAMN Gossel continues to push his signature mixed-media approach with layer upon layer of iconic native american and civil rights imagery juxtaposed with a series of whimsical pop imagery referencing children's cartoons and coloring books. The end result is an exhibition that is both dynamic and colorful, offering a fragmented commentary on race, power, social injustice, and a loss of innocence.

With a background in design, Gossel's work is an expressive interplay of many diverse words, images, and gestures, and his multilayered compositions illustrate a visual history of change and process.
