Delusions of Grandeur:  Wesley Clark, Shaunté Gates, Jamea Richmond-Edwards, Amber Robles-Gordon, Stan Squirewell

The small sampling is enough to get a sense of the individual artists, whose diverse styles — true to the show’s name — have little to do with one another.- Michael O’Sullivan, The Washington Post (Full Article HERE)

“No Strings Attached” is a micro-examination of systematic control.  Mechanisms such as: tethering, bindings, trusses, and all constructs that joins or is fixed in their inaction to hold in place.  To remove bondages one must cut, pry, scrape, hack and in severe cases chew off portions of themselves.  Is freedom worth the cost of admission?

Delusions of Grandeur is a collective of five artists currently living in the DC Metropolitan area, working together to bolster our careers and shine a light on the happenings of the DC art scene.  Named aptly for our dedication to our craft and the delusions artists must possess in order to continue progressing in their artwork and careers; the act of being defined on one’s own terms.  Amber Robles-Gordon, Stan Squirewell, Jamea Richmond-Edwards, Shaunté Gates, Wesley Clark, and we are Delusions of Grandeur.
