Stephon Senegal: When Monsters Tremble
Aug 17, 2022 — Dec 17, 2022
Stephon Senegal: When Monsters Tremble features largely abstract paintings filled with fleeting glimpses of text and recognizable images. Senegal’s many points of reference include Senegalese, Malian, Native American, Catholic, Black Americana, and Nihon Manga traditions. The energetic compositions of Senegal’s paintings embody the complications of understanding his Louisiana Creole ancestry in the context of what is presupposed as normative American culture.
