“Overall, I think I have just ended up back where I started: blissfully lost in the wilderness of society, like a coyote in the dump.” So Sage Vaughn told us on the eve of his new solo show, Second Nature, now on view at Chandran Gallery in San Francisco. The themes that Vaughn focuses on here are more an antithesis of control. Survival and nature are being rethought, reimagined into what Vaughn sees as a more natural interpretation. “Peace and Love is not natural without War and Savagery,” Vaughn states. “That’s why the beauty in nature is so much more profound. Nature is chaos, a vast savage and beautiful mess of perfection, fragile and dangerous, fleeting and infinite.”
