Experience the endless rhythm of conscious at Oak Cliff artist’s November Gallery 550 opening
Event: Wednesday, November 1, 6:30-9pm
Location: Globe Runner, Gallery 550, 16415 Addison Rd #550, Addison, TX 75001
Artist: Gary Perrone
For a few years, the walls at Globe Runner, a Dallas-based digital marketing agency, have been a haven for art. Next week, they’re hosting a come-and-go cocktail party and art opening featuring Oak Cliff-based artist, Gary Perrone.
The event is part of a quarterly initiative to make a positive contribution to Addison’s community and culture.
Perrone’s exhibit started with one idea: to give shape to the artist’s inner thought processes, transferring the visual noise within his mind to canvas.
Perrone has been creating fine art since 2001. For the last few years he’s been grappling with questions like, what do thoughts look like and how can they be rendered visually? He uses his internal mindscape as his muse, paying close attention to how creativity moves through his awareness. His paintings, referred to as Subroutines, attempt to capture the endless rhythm of thought, otherwise known as the “white noise” of the greater consciousness.
“The concept for my paintings is based on the idea that thoughts, indiscernible to the naked eye, can be represented visually,” says Perrone. “I see mental subroutines as having rhythm and chaos and color; they are omnipresent layers that can obscure the true nature of things. A certain kind of order emerges as thoughts materialize on the canvas, which I believe reveals the innermost self.”
The event is free and open to the public. RSVP to the November 1 event here.
