I recently had the pleasure of visiting Rico Gatson’s Bushwick studio as he prepares works for his forthcoming solo show at Samsøn Gallery in Boston, Massachusetts. It will open this June.

While looking and at and making installation-related associations among the artist’s boldly marked, abundantly bright, curiously meta-dimensional, and politically suggestive yet not overtly declarative paintings, painted objects, sculptural paintings and sculpted things, we talked about creative necessity and reason, fidelities and forms, funks and mystiques, exhibitional risks, spatial forays, volumes turned all the way up, and staccato arrays.

Here are some photos I took during my visit. Have a look at Gatson’s website for more images and information.
