Christina Quarles

2 items left

A member of the vanguard of artists who are upending the white male-dominated art scene, Christina Quarles’s art is often considered in relation to her identity as a queer, cis-woman of mixed race.

Her large-scale, exuberantly colored paintings reflect both the ambiguities of these identities as well as the constraints that such labels enforce. Curator Grace Deveneys illuminating insights into Quarless work reinforce its power and vitality and illuminate why this young painter is making waves in the contemporary art world.
