Vaughn Spann: Chapel Paintings
December 1, 2020 - January 31, 2021
David Castillo Gallery:
3930 NE 2nd Avenue, Suite 201,
Miami, FL 33137

Reflecting on contemporary times defined by racial inequality, a global pandemic, and political division, the New Jersey artist’s latest body of paintings ruminate on today’s injustices and losses. Spann created fleshy, textured surfaces rendered in dominant colors of red, white, blue, and black, nodding to both political symbolism and the elements. Each canvas also features an inset oculus—a common element of church architecture—which evokes a tearful eye, weeping wound, or window pointing toward a place beyond.
