Jeffrey Gibson


Jeffrey Gibson is a painter and sculptor living and working in Brooklyn, N.Y., whose works can be found in such private and public collections as the Smithsonian Institution, the Denver Art Museum, the Eiteljorg Museum in Indianapolis, and the School of Advanced Research in New Mexico. Gibson was born in the United States but moved frequently and lived abroad as a child in Germany and Korea. He is a member of the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians and half Cherokee. This unique combination of cultural perspectives and exposure is essential to understanding Gibson’s artworks that combine and transform seemingly disparate references drawn from both Western and non-Western sources.
