Allouche Gallery will open its doors to new works by legendary New York artist Doze Green. A Volta, opening on Thursday November 14th, marks the return to the city that inspired and defined Green’s long standing career. Concurrently, this show offers a comprehensive look into the evolution of the artist’s style leading up to his present creative departure, which is deeply influenced by the raw nature of Alto Paraíso de Goiás, Brazil, where Doze Green lives now.
“This collection marks the evolution of my 30 plus years of studio work, originating from the explosively creative liminal space I found myself early in my career, both as a writer and breakdancer, heavily influenced by Dondi White, Rammellzee and other mid 70s graffiti luminaries, pulling from this time the essence and energy of New York street art. A Volta simultaneously deconstructs and interrogates the transition towards the figurative and abstract within my personal oeuvre and contemporary graffiti. Transcendental archetypes and neoclassical themes are reconfigured by my current expressive relationship to the world.”
“Moving to Brazil shaped a new, deeper understanding of my visual language, catalyzing a new relationship to color, compositions and figures relating to the mythical, the astrological and the powerful energy of our Afro-Caribbean visual legacy.”
Doze Green: A Volta will be on view November 14, 2019 at Allouche Gallery, 82 Gansevoort Street, NYC Opening Reception will be held on Thursday, November 14 from 6-9pm.
