A Lack Of
March 10th to April 28th, 2017
Opens March 10th, 6-9pm
April 6th Artist Talk - 7pm-9-pm
A Lack Of explores and examines photographs with what Susan Stewart calls "a potential commodity, taking place within the abstract and infinite cycle of exchange". George P. Perez presents his entire collection of collected photographs ranging from the 1930’s to circa 1970’s from various locations in the States, and foreign countries like Turkey. A Lack Of presents a personal venture of filling a void, to create a mold of stimulating memories and experiences embedded in a displacement of photographs.
George P. Perez was b. OCT 7 1987, received a BFA (Cum Laude) in 2014 from the University of Colorado, Boulder, and currently resides in Denver, CO. Perez is an artist whose work explores mundane situations and scenarios that he interacts with on a day-to-day basis. Perez’s work can often be seen as a humorous but harsh narrative that reflects and critiques current values in today’s modern society, presenting another perception of banal circumstances. His practice primarily utilizes photography as a means of visual foundation, which at times presents interdisciplinary work that dives into a social practice.
Perez has shown up and down the Front Range of Colorado and outside of the state that have included: (Un)Clothed, Center for Fine Art Photography, Fort Collins, CO, 2013; Archetype Drift: New Methods of Photography Making, Johalla Projects, Chicago, IL, 2013; Cultural Citizen: The Immigrant and the Stranger, The Bridge Gallery, Littleton, CO, 2014; BRIGHT YOUNG THINGS, GOCA121, Colorado Springs, CO, 2015; Monumental: RedLine’s Annual Resident Artist Exhibition, Redline Gallery, Denver, CO, 2016 ; and Visitation, grayDuck Gallery, Austin, TX, 2016.
