Artist Michael Scoggins is currently presenting a series of new text-based works in an exhibition titled “My Good, My Evil” at Freight and Volume in New York City. This will be the artist’s second solo exhibition with the gallery. Scoggins signature hand-drawn notebook paper works are massive in scale, up to 67″ x 51″, and are carefully crafted to look as if they were simply ripped from a child’s notebook. The artist’s intentional sophomoric qualities offer a humor that is able to at once investigate social issues of race, American politics and childhood love. After a recent relocation from Savannah, GA, Scoggins now lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. The artist received an MFA from Savannah College of Art and Design and attended the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture. This year Scoggins has exhibited with Adler & Co. in San Francisco and with D3 Projects in Bergamot Station in Santa Monica, CA.
