Gibbs Street Gallery

An inter-subjective exchange is the primary substrate of Pinkston’s work. Through an examination of imagined histories and sociopolitical realities on our bodies, she utilizes performance, sculptural forms, installation, and digital media. The product of all of these methods mixed together like a gumbo is the creation of trans-disciplinary artworks.
