With Gary, I rub the hardness in history books into the tatter of all yesterdays.- Drenched Co.

Comment: "What connects  the present to the past?  For Gary, the answer lies in a ghosting of sorts -  a presence that marks the now, one that is there but not always visible, fraying at the edges but tenaciously present, leaving a fragmented  trail of deep set  prejudices. In this show Gary wants you to experience  this ephemeral ghosting of place, people and objects in and around the exhibits that seems to have traveled from various performance venues. He wants you to live these erstwhile performances and spaces through the clues he leaves for you. And here, the frayed edges of his posters and sculptures might even converse with you in tones of politics and race. I loved his chalkboard paintings best..."- FaSa
