In Memory of George
Remembering George Seurat's, Summer on la Grande Jatte, here is Summer at Gallup Park, a 21st C version with a 21st C mix of players. Who are they? How do they relate? Do they differ from the 19th C inhabitants of Seurat's park on a Sunday afternoon? Have the people changed? What has happened since then? What is happening here, now? This painting is based on sketches, paintings and photos made at Gallup Park.
This work is featured as part of the 2017 Alumni Exhibition: “Ambiguities/Innuendoes? Go Fish.”, on view at the Stamps Gallery in Ann Arbor. Check the exhibition page for dates, times, and hours.
