Tropical Purgatory, an installation by the late Miami-born artist Michael Garland Clifford (1986 - 2016) was presented by Locust Projects. The exhibition is constructed from renderings created for a proposal at the Locust Projects’ Project Room as well as through correspondence with family, friends and artistic partners.
Known for his crude, process-based paintings, his work often appeared deliberately unrefined. He often employed the use of ingenious abstract mark-making methods and punctuated his works with nostalgic symbols.
