11/14/2009 – Michael Vasquez “How The Land Lies” Gallery Opening


Fredric Snitzer Gallery is proud to present Michael Vasquez in his second
solo exhibition titled How the Land Lies. In his first solo exhibition, Family Jewels,
Vasquez presented a personal portrait of himself in a single parent upbringing,
complemented by the adoption of friends and social personalities that seemed to
replace a missing father figure.

How the Land Lies illustrates a geographical portrait of suburban locations
and symbolic traits carried by members of a neighborhood gang. An earned and
received red bandana in The Acceptance is weighted with the ideology of
membership and loyalty. Michael Vasquez reflects on what it means to be
connected to an organization that survives on taking pride in being territorial,
controlling and intimidating. How to Stand for Something and The Fence Line
accentuate personal and territorial delimitations with a signature stance and graffiti
marks. How the Land Lies describes the influences of locality in a social setting and
the inherited recognition of a belief system.
