Statement

Geraldo Perez has had a passion for art for as long as he can remember. As a little kid growing up in Hell's Kitchen, it was hard for him to be in school and he used to get headaches in kindergarten. The teachers didn't know what to do because he was so unhappy. One day, one of them set him up with an easel, brushes, paper, and paints and it was magical: the headaches went away and things started to make sense.

Geraldo's work is diverse and his paintings invite the viewer to explore and find their own meaning. His use of color and treatment of the surface are both engaging and comfortable, yet provide a platform for discovering what cannot be avoided. His paintings are an exploration of contrasts and similarities in the evolving human condition, which he feels define who we are and where we may be going. He uses nature, photographs, commercial wallpaper, found images, printed fabrics, patterns, and memory to create rich drawings and paintings that defy specific classification.  

Geraldo Perez grew up in New York City, until 2014 when he relocated with his family to Chicago. Mostly self taught, he attended the Art Student League in NYC and later attended The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science of Art where he earned a BFA in 1995. Perez is one of the exhibiting artists at the Blue Mountain Gallery in New York City.
