Paul Brach Visiting Artist Lecture Series
Sayre Gomez works across mediums, namely painting, sculpture and video, to address themes of perception and representation in the face of patriarchal political systems. Recurring metaphors such as windows are often used as a structural approach to investigating the role of context in the distribution and legibility of images in the 21st century. His work references the history of appropriation in tandem with a realist approach to rendering as a way of situating his practice with in traditions of conceptual art as well as pop art and the Pictures Generation. He holds a BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and an MFA from California Institute of the Arts. Recent soIo exhibitions include: Galerie Nagel/Draxler (Berlin); Ghebaly Gallery (Los Angeles); Galerie Rodolphe Janssen (Brussels); Galerie Nagel/Draxler (Cologne); and Galerie Parisa Kind (Frankfurt).
