This exhibition, which speaks of the vigor and sheer abundance of Robert Colescott’s work over the last decade compels us to look at his oeuvre through the lens of the last ten momentous years. Meanwhile the narrative questions he demands that we engage have become, politically and spiritually, more tragically irresolvable. Here we have an opportunity to confront our times through the tangible evidence of a great artist’s mature work as it speaks in his lifetime of “lateness.” In their essays for Troubled Goods the show’s curator, Peter Selz and the de Young Museum’s curator of Contemporary Art, Daniell Cornell, recognize in these paintings powerful unresolved tensions which contribute to their ripeness. -Anne Trueblood Brodzky Director, Meridian Gallery
