Lathan Vargason

Lewisport, KY, USA
"Growing up in a restricted environment, I shaped my own being through research and evolution of ideas. My artwork in the present is an extension of this research. Through minimal imagery, and a process of development and vocabulary, I create vast spaces and confront each viewer with a new set of ideas and thought-provoking imagery and text. I find that the relationships in my own life, past alienation because of sexuality or action, have a common place among a large, broader audience. These relationships and the feelings associated with them are tempted, explored, controlled, and displayed in my work both through subtle and blunt techniques. My work is ultimately a media by which I explore the things that have defined me in my life, including my sexuality, struggles with sexual compulsive disorder, and social interactions among my family and the community that I was raised in. I work to relate everything I do to my viewer, in order to open a conversation between the work, my personal voice, and their own responses. It is important that my work breaks stereotypes, and feeds the growth of a population's acceptance and understanding."
