Border Crossings / Cruzando Fronteras: Alejandro Santiago & Purvis Young
November 1 - December 31, 2014
Border Crossings _ Cruzando Fronteras_ Alejandro S

Skot Foreman Gallery is pleased to present a two man exhibition featuring Alejandro Santiago (Mexican 1964-2013) and Purvis Young (American 1943-2010). Kindred-spirit painters, yet never knowing one another, they were only separated by border and culture. Santiago from the highlands of Oaxaca and Young from the inner city of Miami known as Overtown. Sharing a strong Figurative Expressive brushstroke, throughout their lives both artists remained deeply connected to their respective roots and communities. While Young only crossed borders in his mind via the books and videos he devoured during and after incarceration, Santiago traveled extensively throughout Continental Europe and the US repatriating to his homeland in the latter part of his life. 
The exhibition which runs through December 31, 2014 focuses on the story of their people, the passions of humanity and spirits of the afterlife.
