An interdisciplinary investigation into the personas we create, and the outside forces that shape these identities. Inspired by French visionaries Michel Foucault and Jacques Lacan, artist Wes Holloway dissects the “gaze” and the power structures that influence it. Paintings, drawings and collage capture moments in time, and present back to the viewer a self/non-self that can illicit lust, longing, inspiration, or loss.
Holloway is a Houston native and received his BA and BFA in Studio Art from The University of Texas at Austin. He is currently pursuing his MFA in Social Practice with an emphasis on Public Policy from The Corcoran School of the Arts & Design in Washington D.C.
All exhibitions are free and open to the public Monday - Saturday 9 AM - 5 PM.
