A Monthly Culture Matrix For the Cosmopolitan Traveler

Wardell Milan

Fraenkel Gallery / San Francisco / Art

American artist Wardell Milan combines photography, drawing, painting, collage, and sculpture to shocking effect. He travels to historical sites loaded with emotional significance—the Lorraine Motel in Memphis, for instance, where Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated—and then populates the place with human figures. In these large-scale pieces one may see hooded Klansmen looming over a city, or colorful flowers blooming among monotonal chaos. Freedom, desire, indulgence, death, and destruction are Milan’s themes in this show. —E.C.
