Juan LoganÂ 305 Henry Chapel Road., Belmont, NC 28012 (919) 260-4492 | email@example.com www.juanlogan.com
BioÂ Juan Logan was born in Nashville, Tennessee. He received his MFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art, Mount Royal School in Baltimore focusing on painting and mixed-media sculpture. He currently lives and works out of Belmont, North Carolina. Loganâ€™s artworks address the American experience. Simultaneously abstract and representational, his paintings, drawings, sculptures, installations, and videos address the convergences of race, place, and power. Making the hierarchical relations and social stereotypes visible and how they shape individuals, institutions, and the material and mental landscapes of contemporary life. Juan Logan is currently the Conservation Manager at the Vollis Simpson Whirligig Project, which is actively restoring thirty-one large-scale sculptures created by artist Vollis Simpson for the city of Wilson, NC.
“What do you see?” - Juan Logan
“There is no art without intoxication. But I mean a mad intoxication! Let reason teeter! Delirium! The highest degree of delirium! Plunged in burning dementia! Art is the most enrapturing orgy within man’s reach. Art must make you laugh a little and make you a little afraid.” - Jean Dubuffet
Aesthetically seductive, yet socio politically charged; confrontational yet inviting, captivating and provocative are the artworks by Juan Logan. In a recent art journey, I came across his body of work at Logan Studios and became quickly intoxicated. Unlike encountering them in a museum space, an institution or a gallery; here I found myself entranced in a different type of aesthetic journey; one that would lead me to 15
experience an understanding which I had not encountered before. Juan Loganâ€™s body of work is fascinating; enchanting and challenging all at once, unapologetic and strong with hints of sarcasm and irony that serve to challenge the viewer into engaging with the heavy issues he addresses with every piece he produces. I visited Logan studios with my colleagues at the time; several curators in one room and a different type of aesthetic experience is bound to happen. I had recently become involved in curatorial research for the first ever African American exhibition in a museum in South Carolina. As a Kress Foundation scholar it was my task to deeply delve into the Kress foundation works in the permanent collection of the museum. Because of my involvement in this project, I was asked to accompany my colleagues to visit Logan Studios. Meeting Juan was one of those experiences nothing could have prepared me for. Upon venturing into Logan Studios I became fascinated by what I encountered on the walls before me. Every inch of that massive warehouse type structure was filled with canvas amongst canvas, sculptures, ready made found objects, puzzle pieces, catalogues, photographs, stampers, you name it, the aesthetic journey of a single man throughout time was unraveling before my eyes. What happened inside this space was an experience far beyond the depths of my imagination. As soon as I came into this space I was incredibly captivated by the history that surrounded the place. Juan had â€œabout 40 years of workâ€? within his studio (as he so gracefully put it). I recall coming into the space with no expectations, but I immediately felt a desire to submerse myself within this art space and the experience I was privileged to witness gave more so than just that. I happily followed him around as he showed me work, after work. He answered every possible question I could come up with, and the more I learned the more I felt compelled by what I saw.
Juan Logan began his artistic career circa 1969, and as of today has been a part of over two hundred and fifty exhibitions that range from art fairs to art galleries, and from Intuitions to Museums around the world. His artwork is a part of multimilliondollar corporate collections, world renown private collections and museums; Logan has also been commissioned by various cities to produce public art works. Logan is one of those rare artists that transcend media by challenging the viewers to discuss the relevant concerns of modern society by engaging with his artworks.
A singular symbol emerged time and time again from within the various compositions at Loganâ€™s studio, the shape of a head; an abstract head broken down to its bare essentials aesthetically standing for a myriad of possibilities, that of a person, that of a race, that of Logan himself, that of myself even. The simply rendered shape took various different positions and levels of importance in the myriad of artworks he has produced, for some it was the all-encompassing shape of the artwork that hosted the composition, some works made of paper other of iron. In other instances, this shape repeated throughout the composition in various sizes and media. For some works, the head is a singular shape, in other instances its covered in puzzle pieces, some are glitter based, others are rusted pieces of medal or even stamped on top of wallpaper disguised as background.
Parallel to the concepts being questioned by Sol LeWitt, Carl Andre and Frank Stella, Juan Logan uses modular form in his aesthetic vocabulary to confront his own concerns within his practice. To explore modulation as an aesthetically driven grammatical device, Logan uses the afore mentioned head shape through various of his compositions and thus is granted a larger freedom to explore certain aspects and concerns. However, in making use of this vocabulary Logan stays away from creating conceptual art and infuses his own very unique perspective within his compositions to make a more tangible argument that is more easily accessible to his audience. With this single shape, Logan allows the viewer to take part of the conversation, Logan places himself into the dialogue and even speaks of a multitude of individuals at once that within a single instance become a cohesive community of people involved in articulating one particular query. Similar to his pop-art contemporaries such as Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein and Richard Hamilton to name a few, Juan Logan has condensed the information he carefully selected to be a part of his compositions, and rendered simple to digest figures that are easily recognizable within the cannon of aesthetic appreciation. Which is not to say that Juan is a pop-artist himself, because 18
to state so would fall short of cohesively understanding his trajectory of art and how his aesthetic style has evolved over time. Yet his choice to create complex compositions with easy to recognize forms and symbols allows the viewer to experience a deeper understanding and to have an intimate conversation with Logan’s artwork. As Mark Sloan, Director of the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art in Charleston articulates; “Seduced by the beauty of the work we are then drawn into the complexities of the content.” Thus Logan’s artworks entice the viewer to have a deep and meaningful reaction to the subject matter he pushes to the forefront of the dialog. Logan’s artwork is analogous to Neo-Dadaist Jasper Johns and Robert Rauschenberg’s own aesthetic practices. Like his colleagues, the meaning of Logan’s work does not necessarily lie within the object of aesthetic appreciation set forth before us, but instead a greater understanding comes from the interaction between the viewer and the subject matter being challenged by Logan himself. Thus the core idea that Logan places in the conversation has an innumerable amount of meanings and possibilities. As the artist articulates himself about his series of artwork entitled Reliquaries, “It is the love of the material as a tool… whatever my original feelings and intent, as time passes the particular shape or form or color that may have one meaning to me may become different from what I originally intended. In the process the whole story is never on the surface.” Therefore, a new language emerges from within the canvas, from within the restructure and composition of the ready found objects that take shape into sculptures produced by Logan. The countless other aesthetic articulations go far beyond media to transcend their own connotations and articulate tangible concerns that he challenges within his aesthetic discourse. In a sense Logan’s found-object artworks exist in the rift between art and life, with innovative practices 19
and rare materials Logan sets forth a new kind of aesthetic challenge, a seductive yet compelling dialogue that emerges from within the core of his artworks. Such is the case of Sugar House (shown in page 1819), a magnificent 6 x 16 foot canvas whose sheer existence commanded attention during my visit to Logan Studios. I was immediately drawn to it because of the texture, the color even its size seduced me toward coming closer. As I made my way through the space, every step I took lead me in its direction. I came within feet from it and found myself entranced in its seductive beauty, every inch of this outstanding artwork made me yearn to feel it, to comprehend it, to discuss it, to articulate what it was trying to convey. Upon seeing my initial reaction Logan began to explain the various intricate messages he inlaid within this work. For instance, with it he is referencing the mistreatment that slaves phased historically as they were being tortured in houses of correction; yet he also alludes to illnesses, behavior and a myriad of other concerns both historical and contemporary. As I visually explored the various artworks immediately visible surrounding me at Logan Studios, Juan Logan was incredibly generous in answering my concerns and pushing my ever present inquisitive nature toward places I had yet to concern myself
with. I got a rare glimpse into his series Ghost, it demanded my attention placed over a table; one by one all six artworks that make up the entire series laid bare in front of me demanding my attention. This series of etchings are dark in nature, each of the six square shaped prints shows a single form, a semi visible, almost distant shape that appeared to disappear before my eyes; each showing a different type of ghost. Similar to Lázsló Moholy-Nagy’s photographs by which he incorporated the optical eloquence of light into his compositions to transcend the limitations of his medium at the time. Logan’s etchings thus conveys a potent concern in a very subdued way. As I was presented with this series of prints, Logan asked me “Well… what do you see?” I looked and looked but could not make out any single clue that could give me a hint about the images I was looking at. To me they where fluid; these dark squares in front of me each showed me a form, a form I had not seen, something that was unfamiliar, something new, something strange, something that intrigued me but at this point I was unaware as to why. I stepped back, I took a moment, I was unable to ascertain the answer after a couple of minutes. Logan thus began to place foreign objects in front of me that were being obscured by an adjacent box. He pulled from within that box, leg irons, shackles, and finally an iron neck ring. Amongst the various concerns that inform Logan’s aesthetic practice is a heavy influence by the historical past of the African American 23
people in this country. Logan has been collecting these objects as a way of research for his ongoing practices, similar to Betye Saar’s aesthetic queries by which a series of found objects become witness to her aesthetic process, so too thus Logan’s work begins with a concept he challenges himself; a concept often witnessed by a historical object that Logan later articulates aesthetically and presents to his audience aesthetically. As Lyneise Williams points out “Casting a critical eye, he broadly delineates the territory of American history and culture to include all of its complicated interactions regarding power, economics and race.” Thus inquisitively and aesthetically exploring the relations between power and race both historically and contemporarily, are some of the many concerns palpable within Logan’s artworks. Because Juan Logan grew up in the South during the end of segregation and the Civil Rights Movement, he intimately understood African – Americans’ desire to define themselves on their own terms. Logan expresses himself aesthetically through his artwork while also allowing it to serve as a vessel for larger questions, concerns, and dialogues personal and general alike. As he articulates about his upcoming work entitled The Waiting Project by which he challenges contemporary police brutality: We must all use our skills and passions to create a broader forum for conversation and action. This project is important, relevant, and means so much to millions of Americans who care about the outcome of police violence against African-Americans, and Americans as a whole. 24
Bringing forth a unique dialogue as represented by his artwork and calling for other individuals to get involved in the same queries allows Loganâ€™s work to be at the forefront of aesthetic praxis and thus transcend its own connotations of medium, geography or even temporality. Similar to Mark Bradford aesthetic repertoire, Juan Logan employs his own process to converse about larger concerns and supplies his viewers
with messages that they can easily digest toward becoming involved with a larger conversation that seeks to bring about a change within the way contemporary society behaves. By defying categorization and cultural expectations, Loganâ€™s aesthetic practice places his artwork at the trenches of an exchange that he demands from his audience with every single artwork he produces. Yet Logan manages to deliver this message with a hint of satire and a bit of poignant sarcasm. Such is the case of Keeping America Strong in which Logan places easily recognizable imagery, such as that of an American flag, a phallus and a capirote which together challenge the preconceived notions of African American masculinity as understood by the general populous today. In showing such easily accessible symbolism Logan simplifies the dense subject matter that he is provoking. Similar to Robert Mapplethorpeâ€™s Man in a Polyester Suit, or Fahamu Pecouâ€™s Fra-Gee-Lay. It is clear that Logan understands the ravaging delirium that one bares witness to upon coming across his masterpieces, therefore he infuses each one of them with a deeper meaning; a conversation, a concern to be had and the necessity to delve deep with every encounter. Be it a painting at a museum, a sculpture at a gallery, a monumental work at an institution, a work of public art made of stone or in the intimacy provided by Logan Studios. What I saw that day filled me with a sense of desperation for acknowledging how little I knew about the subjects he was confronting. Since leaving this space I dug a little deeper, called him a couple of times and kept his aesthetic practice mindfully ever present. 26
Logan’s seductive artistic practice now follows me everywhere I go, be it at the High Museum, The Harvey B. Gantt Center’s public façade or even his online presence. Every so sporadically I am privileged to recall the experience of coming across Juan Logan and his work, and how that has changed the way I experience aesthetic conversations presented at me ever since. His work transcends standards of beautyby having a compelling conversation with the viewer and allowing for an alternative engagement that goes deeper that the work placed in front of him. It could be that his years of experience and outstanding trajectory make it so that his work is persuasive. It could be the simplicity of his aesthetic cannon and how easily relatable his language is to comprehend. It could be that like his contemporaries, Logan has presented via aesthetic processes every concern that has tug at his heart strings, it can also be that his work is inviting, intriguing, bewildering and mystifying. It can be the history that he conveys within his renderings, it can be the challenge he provokes within his viewers. It can be that way in which he represents his concerns, it can also be that the man is a genius. Regardless of reason or in spite the need for one as Picasso mentioned once, “we all know that Art is not truth. Art is a lie that makes us realize the truth, at least the truth that is given to us to understand.” If Logan’s work is a lie that will gain us closer to a truth about our ourselves, about our times, about our society, about the way we interact with one another because of reasons such as race or power; then it is of upmost importance that we take a moment to pause, and ask ourselves as Juan Logan once asked me himself “What do you see?”

SWEETMARE is a literary response by John W. Love, Jr. to “I’ll Save You Tomorrow”, Juan Logan’s exhibition of visual works.
SWEETMARE© Something minuscule could no longer bear its own weight. This was just the beginning. i SELF STUFFED Hiding in plain sight and slipping inside selective moments of catatonia was not some cloying, candy-assed bit of child’s play. It was a carefully bound parcel of survival...and all the packages were prone to bruising. • They were stacked like beautifully boxed shoes; spaced, de-papered, and squeezed like naked little chocolates. Not even the missing babies hidden and voluntarily self-stuffed in the corners could make the un-so, so.
Nothing could make this a place of delicacies. There was nothing sweet about The Sugar House. Nothing. • Not a goddamned thing. ii THINNED Their offspring’s skin would become known for brushing off like dust and rust and metal filings; for deriving too much pleasure in slipping across unsuspecting flesh and drawing the tiniest bits of blood. Their kisses would initially taste like vacation, and vanilla bean, and a burnt pepper; taste like a promise and then vault into the full on disappointment of a lie. Bearing no weight and leaving no mark, these babies’ kisses would only leave the indelible stain of a voiceless gasp. When kisses run around like tasteless molasses that gesture is actually too cruel to be innocent. • Dissipation can be an intoxicatingly dark art. There is a skill to diluting horror to the point of overlay, to a wash of filmy residue worn as an anemic glamour. So what is the secret to The Art of Dissipation? 30
Discourage your mythic behemoths and wayward whales from finding their elusive oceans. Encourage your ghosts to beach themselves across their own bloodlines - up your nose, down your throat, and over your psyche. Never root yourself in your now. Always make it about what mama and ‘nem’s people used to do. • Standing on a pile of salt the sweet voiced Daddy said it all very clearly, “Surviving the survival...now that’s a stealth train without a whistle. Don’t be the fool to get caught up in my reflection on the tracks. Choo-muthafuckin’-chooo.” Like the first and tiniest of hairline fractures in a glacier, something small cracked in the distance. iii STAIN AND SMEAR Teeny-tiny. Raised like Braille. Internal scars are real but scarification en utero? Well that shit was legendary. 31
Teeny-tiny. Raised like Braille. It was said those second, third, fourth, fifth…line of babies were born with an endless parade of ellipses as birthmarks. It turns out they weren’t ellipses at all. • The room smelled of bleach, crisp dingy linens, and a tenacious strain of piss. She was always calm in the beginning, “I never aspired to be a Sphinx. Somebody please read me correctly. The constancy of the clumsy ones getting it wrong is an unbearable bit of tedium.” She was calm until things took their customary flight into the blades of her screams. The fingers of the old ones were repeatedly sliced and singed as they tried to coax, tease a little meaning out of her flesh, “All I ever inherited from my muthafuckin’ daddy was a goddamned muthafuckin’ keloid! And for the first eternity of unbearable days that shit wept more than I did! Yeaaah, teeny-tiny, raised like Braille, muthafuckas! What ‘chall readin’?” They weren’t ellipses at all. They were shimmering bits of flesh casting shadows of brass rings and floating hoops worn as haloes, shadows of puzzled personages and lost lottery tickets...golden tickets fading into paper thin dreams inked with the right numbers in all the wrong colors. Seven generations later and a certain insidious dust still hadn’t worked itself up, out, or through any of the babies’ skin. She had sweetmares.
She was the first to actually admit that she had sweetmares, and she had them…all…the…time. When a new baby gurgles in tune with a lonely implosion far away it is a breathtaking confirmation that they have been born with perfect pitch. He was such a new baby. iii DIM HUNTERS The welcome mat to hell has always been a scream. The color of the travesty was the color of dirty butter. That’s why you need salt to cleanse things. • No entity that is to be taken seriously hunts with a dull blade. • They thought she was dead. The first self-stuffed baby girl, they thought she was dead.
Their hubris ate up their instincts and their ignorance was a blessing. They knew she was missing but were too dim to smell the high hanging fruit of a not yet bleeding girl hiding in plain sight. They didn’t think she could get very far. Little did they know it was her formidable three week missing, pretty-eyed, nappy headed little girl-ness that made the decision not to go anywhere. They thought she was dead because they believed their own myths of her worthlessness as they called her ‘a twisted backed bitch who didn’t even have berries yet’…as if that were a weakness. Mean and dirty words are dirty magic and dirty magic makes people filthy in stupidity. That’s why you need salt to cleanse things. I mean where else did these fools think the other missing babies had gone? The rafters were full. vi HOISTING THE OILY Spoken sweetly, Daddy’s words were salty. • Hoisted.
There were big people parts tied, hooked, hung like meat walking through a perpetual purgatory that didn’t have the decency to lead to death. The misery had run its course. It was time to walk and actually get somewhere. • “Baby girl, Daddy needs you to make a decision. Soon the bitterest one will be here alone. In the thickest swathe of the velvet darkness I need you to either slit his throat or slit mine. The treadmill must stop. It’s time to walk and actually get somewhere.” There was nothing sweet about The Sugar House. Nothing. Not a goddamned thing. v 13 generations down the line, born with the same face and same scars, a 7 year old boy of blue- black skin and silver-white hair was awakened from a particularly fitful sleep. “Wake up, baby boy! Wake up! You were having a sweetmare!”
“Huh?”, he chirped. “Wake-up...sweetmare...for real?! Haha! Don’t ch’all know don’t nobody ever wake up from a sweetmare? Hahaaaaa! This time Salt Daddy and I discussed how he wants me to fly into transcendence as opposed to fucking with the train. He said because nobody has a blissful sense of the absurd or gazes at their destinies with the same affection they gaze at their asses nobody ever languishes in the magic of it all. They never laugh when he says, Surviving the survival...now that’s a stealth train without a whistle. Don’t be the fool to get caught up in my reflection on the tracks. Choo-muthafuckin’-chooo. Haha! For some reason I’m crying but I still think it’s funny. I still think Salt Daddy is funny.” It was at this point that a tiny delusion shattered along with a minuscule crystal from the chandelier. Then without warning, a symphonic shattering of crystals and delusions became the soundtrack to his little life...forever. He asked his mama for some sugah and she gave him all he could handle. As she kissed his thick and delicately lined feet, she noticed that within this moment they carried a new and salty little message of their own, Save your breath, if you must wait until tomorrow, don’t save me at all. It was pitched perfectly for a symphony still to be written.
