DESCRIPTION

The Bike Room invites you to a last peek of “Razzle Dazzle Rose,” new works by Chicago painter Nicole Pérez.

“Razzle Dazzle Rose” reveals Pérez’s painterly obsession with pinks and purples wrung through a spectral blue–a rich yet chromatically rigorous palette she has worked with exclusively since receiving her MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2006.

Pérez’s work unearths those exquisite moments of caprice and gentle cataclysm that one experiences when fully immersed within the here and now. In these pieces, the here and now is captured via the polymorphous pleasures of cajoling, twisting, cutting, ripping, squishing, layering, gluing, and utterly confounding form and color through collage and paint. These actions enacted upon Pérez’s seemingly commonplace studio materials lead to that fleeting and inestimable quality of life that makes her aesthetic endeavoring ineluctably steadfast and beautiful: pure joy.

Closing Reception:  Sunday, August 7, 4 to 7 p.m.

Or by appointment: (773) 329-7879
