We are proud to present Ralph Massey’s first solo exhibit.
His work confronts the dilemma of second generation migrants in an ever changing environment and the reality of species extinctions happening around the world. The subjects overlap when animal species are used as metaphors. The sometimes harsh imagery is delivered with colorful streams of humor masking an underlying sense of uneasiness or estrangement. Teasing insights to the lives of his subjects alternate with foreboding images of threat. Experimental compositions reflect a restless intellect. Bold colors deliver a sensual visual bouquet. The series revolves around the potent symbolism of the Statue of Liberty.
Massey’s human and animal subjects are treated with empathy and straight forward respect. He delivers food for thought for the thoughtful beneath a veneer of wry humor.
Exhibit runs 3/11/17 until 4/6/17
