Meet-the-Artist: Todd Gray

January 27th, 2019 1-3 pm

Join The Butler in hosting Todd Gray at our meet-the-artist event exhibiting his show Pop Geometry on view from December 23rd, 2018 through February, 17th, 2019.

The exhibition is on view in the Davis and Finnegan Hynes galleries.

Comprised of approximately 20 mixed media wall and floor sculptures, Pop Geometry from Todd Gray revisits the Pop Era with a distinct currency and impact when considered from a contemporary perspective. The works all have in common imagery from classic American pop art, comic book exclamations, emoji’s, and hashtags with a dynamic kick of bold colors, animated patterns, and diverse fonts. With this body of work, Todd Gray appropriates the imagery of Warhol, Lichtenstein and others, reprising the original pop artists’ method of sampling images from the media world, celebrating and questioning these icons, then remixing them into something personal and original.

This exhibition was organized by Katharine T. Carter &  Associates
