Aptitude For Destruction: Paintings by Gabe Richesson

Published May 29, 2017

In this powerful series, American artist Gabe Richesson explores the mindset of professional football players and what motivates them to take the field.

“Black Book Gallery, a Denver based contemporary art gallery, is thrilled to announce its upcoming exhibition featuring Gabe Richesson, entitled ‘Aptitude for Destruction.’ The exhibit, featuring portraits of six NFL players, officially launches with a free opening reception on the evening of Saturday, May 20th. Open to the public, the launch will take place at 304 Elati Street, Denver, CO 80223 from 7 to 10 pm with the artist in attendance. The exhibition will run until Saturday, June 10th.”

“Learning about each player’s unique path and motivations outside of football inspired me to tell their stories. The life of a professional athlete is complicated and very layered beyond the public view, it’s my hope these paintings reflect their mindsets.”

— Gabe Richesson
