Social and Political Art Takes Over Nashville’s Gallery Walls in August

David Lusk Gallery opens Heed this weekend. This is another group show that reflects on both vast inquiries and pressing issues. Maysey Craddock’s gouache paintings on found paper bags ask big questions about the cyclical duality of the natural world. Craddock’s stylized representations of trees, rivers, roots and vines blend together into an examination of massive natural systems over vast time periods marked by growth, decay, death and rebirth. Ashley Doggett’s historical narratives about slavery and white supremacy are right on time in our current social climate, and the artist’s varied multimedia approach finds her continually refashioning fresh conversations for these times. Leslie Holt’s painted surfaces reflect a deep interest in topics like psychology and mental illness. Holt combines abstracted color fields with embroidered brain scans that reveal illnesses like schizophrenia, PTSD and depression. Rob Matthews’ latest work finds the artist bringing his technical hand to explorations of crises we associate with America’s decades-long wars in the Middle East: forced migration and terrorist assassinations. Matthews uses graphite, paint and collage techniques to create stylized lines and frantic cross-hatching, as well as detailed depictions of apocalyptic imagery from music history and the Bible.
