Geraldo Perez : ex silentio
May 19 – June 13, 2015
Reception: Thursday May 21, 5 – 8 pm
Blue Mountain Gallery is pleased to present new paintings by Geraldo Perez. The exhibition is entitled “ex silentio”, a Latin phrase meaning “from silence”.
The paintings are an exploration of contrasts and similarities in the evolving human condition, which he feels are rapidly defining who we are and where we may be going…constantly transforming physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual landscapes. Perez uses images from photographs and memory with vivid color and random composition, pushing the contrasts and allowing for the encounter of what is and what isn’t. The patterns and color variations serve as platforms from where to silently appreciate humanity and diversity. He presents the contrasts between non-gender conformists, non-binary brothers and sisters, c-walking kids, and the American suburban ideal and reality.
Perez’ paintings are a daily practice of exploration and discovery. He has studied with Stephen Greene at the Art Student’s League in New York and with David True, Don Kunz, Stewart Diamond, and Jack Whitten at The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art. He is based in New York and Chicago.
This is Perez’s second solo show at Blue Mountain Gallery.
