This exhibition represents the first U.S. solo exhibition by Caribbean artist David Gumbs, featuring immersive, interactive digital installations and drawings. Gumbs is a multi-disciplinary artist from the island of Saint Martin, currently based in Martinique. Inspired by Caribbean flora, fauna, history, and mythology, Gumbs’ work often is concerned with “the offscreen of perception, the cycle of life, the visible and invisible.” He graduated from the Visual Arts school in Fort-de-France, Martinique in 2001 and in 2002 studied Interactive Multimedia Conception at Les Ateliers, L’ENSCI in Paris. Gumbs has exhibited his drawings, video, and interactive work internationally at venues including Paris City Hall; Patricia & Phillip Frost Art Museum; Museum of Latin American Art, Los Angeles; and in 2016 was awarded the Davidoff Art Initiative Artist in Residence in Beijing, China. At Telfair, Gumbs will show his large-scale installation Blossoms, and will exhibit new interactive video works and show drawings on paper linking his new media work to his practice of intuitive drawing
