Statement

Internationally acclaimed artist, Jim Pallas, has exhibited and won awards in France, Canada, Japan, and Mexico.   Known for his whimsical, electronic sculptures, he is one of the pioneers in the use of electronics in art.  One of his most popular and electronically complex pieces responds to the proceedings of the U.S. Senate.  "The Senate Piece,"  was commissioned by Senator Carl Levin for his Senate Office.    Mr. Pallas has had solo exhibitions in New York City and at the Detroit Institute of Arts.  He has been making portraits of Hitchhikers and setting them on the road for 30 years. His current Portrait project, ART GIANTS IN DETROIT at N'Namdi Center for Contemporary Art, is generating major buzz.  The works depict 16 artists, collectors and writers of the Detroit art scene on large foamy surfaces hardened by layers of pigmented epoxy.
