Emilio Perez: Footprints on the Ceiling at Galerie Lelong
Saturday, January 4, 2014 - Saturday, February 1, 2014

Emilio Perez is exhibiting new paintings at Galerie Lelong in New York, in an exhibition entitled "Footprints on the Ceiling."

From the gallery:

"Emilio Perez’s third solo exhibition at Galerie Lelong, "Footprints on the Ceiling," will showcase the artist’s unique method of combining painting and drawing in a body of new work that includes a monumental, 40-foot long mural painting, one of the artist’s largest site-specific works to date. The exhibition reveals a departure from previous bodies of work in the use of a richer, more complex color palette, a more distinct figuration, and expanded negative space. Also shown alongside the new paintings will be a triptych from 2011, on view for the first time in New York. The artist will be present for the opening on January 9th from 6-8pm.

Having always been attracted to painting and drawing, Perez’s unique practice is a back and forth conversation between the two mediums. Perez does not sketch or make plans prior to approaching his prepared panels. Rather, his dynamic compositions are arrived at in an intuitive additive / subtractive process. As he brushes wet-on-wet passages over a thin, atmospheric sprayed-on ground, colors blend and physical depth is built. He then commits to drawing back into the surface—slicing into it with a sharp Exacto knife— to peel away large and small areas that define the composition."

Emilio Perez: Footprints on the Ceiling is on view at Galerie Lelong, 528 West 26th Street, NY, NY, through February 1st, 2014.
