RETNA exhibition catalog

As we unveil the pages of the exhibition catalog for RETNA's "Appetite for Destruction" at Burgess Modern + Contemporary, we encounter an odyssey through canvas and culture, a profound narrative that challenges the orthodoxies of art. This exhibition, launching today, December 26, 2023, marks a pivotal juncture in the artist's career, where the act of destruction becomes a portal to creation.

The catalog itself, an artifact of artistic exploration, features pieces like "Slang Them Colors," a tribute woven in the hues of the American flag, reverberating with the legacy of the artist’s late father. It's a chromatic journey that transcends the visual, delving into the heart of American ethos with each cut and each stitch—a visual eulogy penned in the language of colors.

This exhibition is not merely a display; it's a challenge laid before us to witness the ephemeral nature of existence, to appreciate the transient yet transformative power of art. RETNA's work is a testament to resilience, where each gouge and suture speaks of life’s fragility and the inherent human capacity for healing and redemption.

Burgess Modern + Contemporary is proud to present this catalog as your guide through RETNA's vision, where each page is a step deeper into the labyrinth of his mind.

We invite you to join us in this exploration, to immerse yourself in the "Appetite for Destruction," and to engage with the work of an artist who continues to redefine the boundaries of creation and destruction.
