ABOUT / Collaborators Brandon Friend and Jason Douglas Griffin have worked together since 2011 under the name Gentleman’s Game. "Similarly prevalent amongst musicians that work together, we found the artistic process exciting and opened the gates for ‘happy accidents’ that extended beyond just the material,” they explain. Together, their colorful, figurative images are evocative of a friendly aesthetic game that borders on dueling, full of jest, one-upmanship, and allusive imagery. Works such as their “Captains” series, which imagines portraits of unnamed captains composed of figurative scraps, gestural marks, and abstract patterning, yields a complicated web of art-historical and socio-political allusions.
