Featured Artist Gordon Skinner

At a younger age, Skinner struggled with his own identity as an African-American, and according to his artist statement, he often feels like “he is part of a group that feels fragmented, colonized, and lost.”

So when he started painting, three years ago (really? yes, 2009), he wanted to “vent that sense of invisibility in a tangible way.”
