David McGee: “The Return of Mofo”

Artist David McGee gives a gallery talk for his newest series of paintings, which juxtapose references to literature and art history with contemporary images and personalities. On view through February 15 at Texas Gallery.

David McGee is known for a kind of “labeling” system in his paintings. By juxtaposing seemingly unrelated images and text, he forces connections that reveal deeper truths and meanings. His newest series of paintings, “The Return of Mofo,” imposes a blaxploitation-inspired character onto a work by Diego Velazquez and draws inspiration from Van Gogh, Magritte, literature and contemporary personalities. Houston Public Media’s Troy Schulze participated in a gallery talk with McGee.
