Exhibition Website

Jan 27 2017 - Apr 2 2017

In the Abbreviated Portrait Series, native Oklahoma artist Poteet Victory (Cherokee/ Choctaw) distills portraits of celebrities and other iconic figures to the most minimal forms and associated colors. The artist has long been fascinated with Carl Jung, Joseph Campbell, Wassily Kandinsky, and others who explore the power of symbols and colors. Victory’s portraits employ common mental cues or triggers commonly associated with popular personalities, the titles of which are abbreviated in a manner akin to popular acronyms.
