Gary Logan: Elements

Trinidadian-American artist Gary Logan explores our unique relationship with the Earth and its elements through dramatic lighting, atmospheric ambiguity, vivid colors, and rich textures. Drawing visual and conceptual inspiration from both Taoism and the Romantic tradition in painting, Logan’s work evokes a sense of mystery, raw emotion, and the sublime. His landscape imagery is a means of navigating the complex terrain of identity and human nature, in order to speak to universal concerns such as oppression, freedom, race, sexuality, healing, and renewal.

Featured work:
Michael Tracy, The Romero Cross

We are proud to present the debut showing at MOCRA of Cruz to Bishop Oscar Romero, Martyr of El Salvador, by Michael Tracy. This major work is dedicated to the Archbishop of El Salvador who was assassinated in 1980 (and is soon to be canonized a saint in the Roman Catholic Church). The Romero Cross has been seen worldwide in prominent venues including the 1982 Venice Biennale, and became part of MOCRA’s permanent collection in 2016. It is now on display after a major conservation and cleaning project that lasted more than half a year.
