Geometric portrait with obscured face by Rodney Ewing

Rodney Ewing

Multi-media artist Rodney Ewing’s work focuses on the intersection of body and place, memory and fact. As a topic-based artist, Ewing’s interdisciplinary practice involves extensive research of overlooked individuals, historical relics, and spaces of the Black Diaspora. He explores the emotional dimensions of his subjects, immersing the viewer in a reorienting experience through the use of images, text, and objects. By layering these visual elements in order to re-examine human histories, cultural conditions, and events, Ewing creates a unique and nuanced experience which requires us to be present and receptive observers.
