Curated by: Brie Henderson
Artists: Gerardo Gomez and Brie Henderson
The artists in this exhibition glamorize transgressive behaviors like drinking and sex as a way of finding their voice within a society that is not accepting of ideas and identities that stand apart from more traditional ways of being and behaving. Gomez and Henderson embrace the unapologetic nature of rebellion that they believe exists within the Millennial generation, their generation. They combine vibrant colors with imagery that is at once intensely realistic and yet expressionistic to create a relationship with the viewer defined by intimacy. Gomez and Henderson use their art making to confide in the viewer: discovering, confronting, and revealing who they, as artists and as people, really are.
