Painter's Refuge: A Way of Life - A Solo Exhibition of Recent Work by Reginald Sylvester II

Reginald Sylvester II's paintings are manifestations of grace. The emergent young artist's influences range from the Bible, Abstract Expressionism, contemporary design, and the readymade. For his first American solo museum exhibition, Sylvester reflects on the charged history of the materials he uses in the creation of his work. Military tent shells – functional, utilitarian objects – serve as the substrate for a transcendent new body of abstract paintings that allude to shelter, protection, and refuge. The son of a U.S. veteran, Sylvester's use of military tents also connects with the familial.
