IDENTITY a solo exhibition by Sage Barnes

The TAX Collection + Guy Hepner present, IDENTITY, a solo gallery exhibition by Sage Barnes. Opening October 12th, IDENTITY explores the human condition as we navigate through our own personal narratives and the world that’s continuously moving around us.

A Self Portrait #8 by Sage Barnes

A self-taught artist, Sage Barnes has only learned to create from his own ideas, which is exactly what sets him apart. He has found a unique combination of abstract, realistic, and street art techniques, which are often kept separate. 

The Feeling #1 by Sage Barnes

Many of his works feature a very realistic bodice, with an explosion of colors in place of ahead, painted against a graffiti-like wall. His Instagram bio reads “college dropout,” potentially as a way to share with people that there is no clear cut path to success.

Pressure #1 by Sage Barnes

Guy Hepner first collaborated with The Tax Collection in 2016, with a successful group exhibition Ephemeral. The TAX Collection is a multi modal creative collective aimed at revolutionizing the way popular culture interacts within producer-consumer, artist-audience, and creator-user relationships.
