Gardner Museum Artist-in-Residence Adam Pendleton sheds light on forgotten history – or disrupts established histories by building new potential associations.

His multifaceted projects, which include painting, collage, film, and publishing, re-contextualize historical and theoretical positions on abstraction, Blackness, and the avant-garde.

Pendleton creates collages from material found in books and from his own drawings and paintings, silk-screening them onto sheets of transparent film.

In this work, the artist features a photocopied image of a carved figure taken from a book, transferred onto a clear sheet, and set against a painted surface of circle and squares.

By using this strategy of collage and juxtaposition, a figure several times removed from its source, the artist is creating a new visual language of cultural encounter and association.
