Artists pushing boundaries of form and content
Rodney Ewing’s drawings and installations focus on his drive to question human histories, cultural conditions, and events by pursuing a narrative that requires us to be both present and intimate. This line of questioning and observation has preoccupied his practice over the years leading to the creation of several different distinct bodies of work that challenge the narrative modes of documentation. These text-based installations and works on paper question how we view time, memory, and history as linear isolated constructs instead of concurrent moments. He has garnered critical attention in publications such as Art News, Art Week, Artillery Magazine, and Black Arts Quarterly, among others. Rodney Ewing has presented solo exhibitions at IcTus Projects and Frey Norris Gallery, and his work has been included in numerous group exhibitions locally and nationally.
