Interference will include a compilation of Crisp’s work spanning many years, including paintings, collage, and his book, Slave. Probably best known for his political activism, his work is often viewed through a political lens, though it can also be read as deeply personal. Crisp’s work exists in a space between directness and ambiguity. Using poetic gestures, Damien Crisp suspends direct interpretations of his artwork through emotive mark-making, and he develops new linguistic associations with repetitive text. His artwork intuitively relates to anyone living in the 21st century. Unpacking the significance of Crisp's work is a thought-provoking exercise for semioticians, painters, and psychoanalysts.
Damien Crisp is an artist currently living and working in Chattanooga, TN. He received his Bachelor of Fine Arts in painting from the University of Tennessee at Knoxville and his Master of Fine Arts at the School of Visual Arts in New York City.
