The Kalahari Gallery is pleased to present Sacrificial Lambs, a solo exhibition of work by Genesis Tramaine. Please join us Thursday December 6, 2012, from 6-10 p.m., for the exhibition opening and to meet the artist. We are also pleased to announce the inclusion of student works from P140. To coincide with the opening we will be hosting a conversation with Genesis Tramaine at 6 p.m.
In the exhibition, Tramaine presents a series of paintings, collages and installation that reflect the artist viewpoints on what it means to make sacrifices. The series aims to speak for those who are sacrificed unwillingly and unnecessarily. Genesis refers to sacrifice as a place of self-reflection, self-selection and praise for a belief in something greater.
Works by Genesis include large scaled, color filled portraits of men, women and children who transcend blackness as political or representative. The series is comprised of mixed media paintings, sketches and collage that embody a unique interpretation of human sacrifice. The show will also feature works by four-student artist from District 75, P140.
