P.P.O.W is pleased to present 1981-2021, at two-person exhibition featuring paintings by Brooklyn-based artist Aaron Gilbert and the late Chinese-American artist Martin Wong, opening April 2 through May 1.
Sparking an intergenerational dialogue, this exhibition focuses on two artists whose practices amplify the societal pressures of both their private lives and the NY communities they inhabit. 1981-2021 pairs a selection of works by the late artist and Gilbert’s ongoing series. Collapsing time with influences ranging from Early Renaissance painters such as Fra Angelica, devotional retablo painters, to Martin Wong himself, Gilbert honors the profound transformational power of human beings, even in the moments that feel most jarring or unsettling. Taken together, Wong and Gilbert’s works distill meaning and love amid the darkness’s of our age to reveal the latent beauty in fundamental human existence.
