Reception & Gallery Talk: Madai Taylor, An Elegy to America in Black and White

September 13, 2018 @ 12:00 pm CDT


September 13, 2018 – January 22, 2019
Forsberg Riverside Galleries
A poignant and provocative exhibition of non-subjective works of art with accompanying poetic writings that detail the reason for the pain and suffering of black folk brought by ship and sold into bondage, as it relates to biblical prophecy, against the backdrop of American history, as exacted by the American spirit.

Fort Dodge, Iowa artist Madai Taylor uses a mix of non-traditional materials to create his paintings. The rich layering of Iowa earth, cotton rope and roofing paper produces visually complex surfaces and results in a powerful accumulation of symbolism.
