Is it that I desire to see Jesus bend, to witness them at odds or in question? Jesus loves me, but I believe that Jesus is in process too. 2018. Elliott Jerome Brown Jr.
Elliott Jerome Brown Jr., an alum of the NYU Tisch Department of Photography & Imaging, is part of a group show at PPOW Gallery in NYC. "Do You Love Me?" brings together a diverse group of emerging artists working in various media to explore contemporary desire by displaying artworks that double as entreaties for connection, intimacy, and external validation within the context of broader societal power structures. The exhibition opens July 11, 2019 and runs through August 9, 2019.
