As an emerging artist in 1990, Greg Colson began developing unique visual and conceptual trajectories that continue to evolve today. More than twenty years after Roberta Smith named him to the New York Times Faces To Watch list, Patrick Painter Inc. is pleased to present Greg Colson: Early Works; a selection of objects from that initial period in the artist's practice.
The wall works on display in the West Gallery are illustrative of Colson's signature deadpan relationship to the formulaic. In the guise of something diagrammatical, Colson's work slowly reveals itself to be inconclusive, warped or otherwise imperfect, a sly investigation into our collective preoccupation with order. By arranging disparate materials and aesthetic information into apparently ordered visual alignments Colson has consistently offered poetic reminders of our own hopelessly imperfect humanity.
