QUEENS is pleased to present Rings, a solo project by LA-based artist Keaton Macon. Rings consists of a series of drawings that transcribe cultural events relevant to each other seemingly by chance in time. Upon closer reflection, repeated forms, colors, and motifs found in the works suggest connections of a more concrete framework. Macon is an artist working in drawing, painting and installation. He uses images, objects and sound to allude to historical events and collective memory, and the gaps in knowledge and experience that they produce. These arrangements often skirt attempts of piecing back together events, in favor of producing sensory experiences that ground the viewer in the now.

 

His work has been exhibited at 356 Mission, AR Projects, Laurel Doody, PØST, RAFFMA at California State University San Bernardino, Shosanna Wayne, and was part of the KChung project series at The Hammer. This year Macon is included in the MexiCali Biennial and The Other Places Art Fair.
