on sincerity

Added on by Jessica Gath.

 

“Gath fuses her practices in painting and performance in a work that positions a self-portrait in the process of making an artwork. The figure is frozen in a moment of creation as she tapes a Mos Def lyric to the floor in the gallery space. Gath’s chosen text sites the inheritance of love and its healthy manifestation in future generations through acts of kindness and artistry.” – Liz Munsell

* “My folks said they wuz in love when they had me
     I take the love they made me wit to make…”

[Mos Def lyric* from “Love”, artist tape, oil on board, 2012]
