Serge Gay Jr.’s paintings are steeped in a feeling that seems to have found its way to the canvas from George Clinton’s saxophone. On their journey to the canvas, these sounds seem to have intermixed with those of social constructs and cultural misgivings, forming a complex if cacophonous narrative. This pleasant if unlikely synthesis makes its way to the viewer by way of the artist’s own curious light.
