PRESS RELEASE (PDF)
Cindy Lisica Gallery is pleased to announce the solo exhibition of Houston-based artist Anthony Suber. This new body of work draws from an extensive visual vocabulary of African diaspora and contemporary American experience. The artist executes his honed sculpture skills to create thoughtfully molded concrete and wood forms and oxidized metal pigments for his poetic paintings. Audiences at the opening reception will witness a performance at 7PM in collaboration with dancer/choreographer Harrison Guy, incorporating wearable artwork, sound and video for this special presentation of the piece, Griot Gospel. Through the artist’s personal connection with spiritual and social relationships, the multi-media artwork will transform the gallery and present a compelling visual journey through time and culture.
ABOUT THE ARTIST: Anthony Suber holds a BFA from the University of Houston and teaches Studio Art and Art History at the Kinkaid School. His powerful large-scale totem sculptures and smaller-scale Ritual Masks were featured in the group exhibition Natural Flexibility at Cindy Lisica Gallery in March of this year, and this exciting solo exhibition will please both familiar followers of the artist and newer audiences. Suber’s artwork has been placed in collections across the country and included in exhibitions at local institutions such as the Houston Museum of African American Culture, Project Row Houses, and Sculpture Month Houston.
