"For her second solo exhibition at moniquemeloche, Ebony G. Patterson presents '…until you see them,' a series of new, large-scale, mixed-media works on paper. Patterson’s signature, monumental mug-shot portraits have grown into complex groupings of full figures as she expands her exploration into the varied interpretation and appropriation of feminine archetypes by young men of the African diaspora. In this expansion, Patterson introduces the female figure to address modes of visibility and invisibility within a certain cultural code. Notions of the feminine, fashion, pattern, decoration and pastiche grow in '…until you seem them,' as Patterson explores a new forest of figuration."
