Richard-Jonathan Nelson Weaves a Speculative Future

In this solo exhibition, Oakland-based artist Richard-Jonathan Nelson combines craft practices like embroidery, weaving and quilting with digital imagery to depict Black bodies in speculative futures of saturated color. Layering and mixing images of the natural world with references to hoodoo, queer culture and Afrofuturism, Nelson creates alternate worlds that are hard to keep yourself from physically embracing. —Sarah Hotchkiss
