From Something Cool Studios:
“There are only two mistakes one can make along the road to truth; not going all the way, and not starting.
Veracity brings together work from three artists employing distinct lenses to authenticity. Shanisia Person explores diverging aspects of gender, employing literal transparency to appose its place in the broader society with how it functions within the BDSM community. Brent Pheto populates his world with relatable characters demonstrating the ubiquity of disempowerment through the raw emotions often present in everyday situations. Cameron Gray utilizes materiality as a codex to unlock the ancestral spirit, selecting objects that often have violent connections to Blackness and repositioning their narrative. In combination these artists present an uncompromising view of a world which would prefer that we close our eyes rather than see the truth.
About the artists:
Cameron Gray (he/him) is based in Ames, IA where the artist’s Buxton Initiative produces community based projects in direct conversation with Blackness.
Shanisia Person (they/them) creates multimedia works in Atlanta, GA where being Queer helps them to understand beauty beyond what gender and any binary can contain.
Brent Pheto (he/him) lives in Austin, TX and brings his ethos from the east coast punk scene into the philosophical concepts and political and social ideologies within his work.
