“Identity” is an abstract autobiography of my experience as an outsider. I grew up the only non-white kid in my suburban community. I came out publicly at school and at home at the age of 15. I dropped out, moved out, and became a part of Buffalo’s fringe communities- gay youth, and drug culture. I was always on the outside of the mainstream. Others defined my identity by what I was not to them.
It wasn’t until much later in life that I accepted the things that make me different, and chose to celebrate them. In “Identity”, I have created mini-installations that form abstract landscapes or stories that suggest and reflect the solitary beauty of being divergent, different, misunderstood.
Wise is the Owner of 464 and Blink Galleries in Buffalo and is the President of the Emerging Leaders in the Arts Buffalo. Wise, a University at Buffalo graduate, grew up in Hamburg NY, and has lived in the city of Buffalo for the past 18 years.
