Ghosted Portraits: The Invisible Narratives of Self by Trace Logan

August 21-October 20. Public viewing from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.

What does it mean to be seen? How do we express our true selves in a world that often expects us to fit into certain molds? How can art help us explore these questions and challenge our assumptions?

These are some of the questions that inspire Trace Logan, a Philadelphia-born artist who currently lives in Oklahoma City. Trace works with various mediums, such as acrylic, digital art, photography, and collage, to create stunning abstract portraits that reveal the invisible narratives of self. He is also a proud member of the LGBTQ community and a passionate advocate for social justice.

Trace’s latest project, Ghosted Portraits: The Invisible Narratives of Self, will be on display at the Chapman Commons from August 21, 2023, to October 20, 2023. It features portraits of members of Trace’s community, mostly LGBTQ individuals, who have agreed to share their stories and perspectives through art. Trace uses abstraction to create a visual contrast between personal identity and public persona. He combines elements of texture, color, and movement with realistic facial features to create a dynamic and expressive representation of each subject. The result is a captivating and thought-provoking collection of artworks that invite viewers to reflect on their own identities and perceptions.
