The exhibition is titled after a large work completed in 2020 with a theme reflecting on the state of being present, while acknowledging the past, seeing glimpses of future, while we are here right now, creating. These striking works were created “during live time of instability, despair, solitude, upheaval, reawakenings, planning, transition, new love, relocating... these are physical expressions of experiences.” This exciting exhibition showcases a vibrant and fascinating collection of new work, highlighting the artist’s direct response to everyday life happenings. “Be it living during this complex era of political turmoil and covid-19, a pheasant who took refuge in my yard or appreciating experiences with my loved ones in this city,” states Vasquez Coe. “These are my painted words, painted breaths, painted determination and I wish to keep creating with what is right now”, declares Vasquez-Coe.
“Contrails and Peripheries” will be on display at Royse Contemporary through March 21, 2021.
