Live Painting with Joseph “Sentrock” Perez

April 10, 2013 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 am

Free

2 days before the opening reception of “Alter Egos”, Perez will be painting a piece live for guests to enjoy! Join us for this unique perspective on the artist and view the exhibition in the gallery during this pre-opening event!

“Alter Egos” is a body of work that conceptualizes the artistʼs own imagination through characterized images. These unique characters are a combination of human and animal, allowing us to draw conclusions on the character represented based on the characteristics generally associated with them. These characteristics are defined by Perez as alter egos.

Perez paints in an unafraid style using bold colors, hand-written messages and sometimes jarring juxtapositions of objects and figures. It is clear to the viewer that he intends on relaying a story with each piece and although these are images reflective of an imagination, it is also clear that they are greatly influenced from real life. As Perez says, “My concept behind ʻAlter Egosʼ is to show another side of an individual through an imaginative mental escape.” The characters in each piece provide an emotional representation of the message Perez is trying to relay through his work, which is strongly influenced by his surroundings.
