RAFAEL SANCHEZ

Presented at:
Hallwalls

Solo exhibitions in conjunction with Revelations featuring works by Rafael Sanchez. "The work in this exhibition evolves from a point of view that welcomes a reconciliation between primordial and tectonic forces. The notion of stasis is sublimated by the dereliction of structural priorities in the pursuit of a non-linear orientation throught the trajectory of nature" (RS, 87). Featuring mixed media works including: SHIPS AT SEA (1986), ASTIGMATISM (1986), I WENT HOME (1986), HILLS OF EIRE (1987), PIRACY AND SURRENDER (1986), UNTITLED (GOLD DIPTYCH, 1987), QATAR (1987), SUMALIYA, HAITI, VIET-NAM, EL ORO DE EQUADOR (1987).

Laylah Ali
Paintings and Drawings


Laylah Ali's work explores power dynamics and interpersonal conflict through compositions that position culturally, racially and sexually ambiguous figures in precarious, loaded, and unexpectedly humorous situations. Ali uses concise—even minimal—imagery that is specific in rendering and intent. While there are narratives in Ali's work, they are stories whose open spaces often give them the atmosphere of fables.
