Celebrate the Gantt Center’s new exhibition, Painter’s Refuge: A Way of Life– A Solo Exhibition of Recent Work by Reginald Sylvester II. For his first solo American museum exhibition, Sylvester reflects on the charged history of the materials he uses in the creation of his work. Military tent shells and functional utilitarian objects serve as the substrate for a transcendent new body of abstract paintings that allude to shelter, protection, and refuge. In Sylvester’s hands, rubber becomes a medium for deeply contemplative, nearly monochromatic paintings that vibrate with spiritual intensity.
