Description

Andre Pace's artwork is deeply personal. He seeks to represent racial diversity through visual diversity. The work's references to cubism visually abstracts his subject matter to divert attention away from realism and toward a search for deeper meaning. Pace has stated that he intends to reflect his inner-self while suffusing this with an exploration of humanity; thus, expanding on society's relationship with black communities and the necessary push to reach racial justice. With links to the works of Jean-Michel Basquiat and Jacob Lawrence, utilising the visuality of dynamic cubism, the artist explores his own African-American identity within the canon of art history. This work portrays life in New York City on the lower east side - the city's first racially integrated neighbourhood, with the arrival of African Americans and Puerto Ricans after World War II. 

Artist

Andre Pace 

Andre Pace is an artist, residing in New York, whose work expands on society and culture through an abstract lens. Pace's work is recognisable through his use of mixed media: often, oils, pastels, crayons and watercolour. This, combined with the deep visual connection to cubism and references to Jean-Michel Basquiat, allows his work to explore contemporary social issues without a framework.

Pace focuses on deconstructing the American dream, fairy tales, and culture through a lens that expands on racial identity. Combining shapes, patterns with text embeds his work with a deeper iconography for the viewer to dissect. The artist pushes the notion that his work is "conceptual mixed media" and "weeds minimal form with maximal content." He sees success within his art and others if a viewer is able to stop and explore its visuality while developing and questionings its content.
