Jeffrey Gibson (Mississippi Band Choctaw/Cherokee), Late Fragment (after Carver), 2012. Recycled painting, acrylic paint, steel studs, grommets, artificial sinew, glass beads, and agates; 84 x 110 in. Gift from Vicki and Kent Logan to the Collection of the Denver Art Museum. Photography courtesy of Denver Art Museum.
This work is a collage of the artist’s earlier paintings that he washed, glued, sewed, and grommeted together, drawing color and design inspiration from historic native arts. Gibson intends this work to be about regaining control and overcoming past failures. The title refers to writer Raymond Carver’s poem, Late Fragment, which expresses a sense of satisfaction with life.
