About Juan Logan
Mixed-media painter, sculptor, and installation artist Juan Logan draws from contemporary culture and the Civil Rights Movement to create pieces that reflect on racial and institutional power structures. The imagery in Logan’s material landscapes walks the line between abstraction and representation. His pieces are often tied to particular sites of commemoration, and Logan asks viewers to consider their social responsibility in the wake of tragedy and oppression.
