CIRCUIT 12 CONTEMPORARY PRESENTS “EVEN FLOW”
Dallas Gallery Features Artwork by Patrick Martinez, Aaron De La Cruz and James Roper
Dallas, TX — October 2012 — Renowned contemporary artists Patrick Martinez, Aaron De La Cruz and James Roper will
exhibit original pieces at Circuit 12 Contemporary gallery from October 13th through November 9th 2012. Titled Even Flow, the show will consist of three to six pieces from each artist, including paintings, sculpture, neon and site specific installation amongst other media.
“The show’s title speaks on the honesty of touch or style of artists participating in the exhibition. It’s sort of like speaking to a friend you’ve known for years, you can speak honestly to them, there is no filter, and everything that comes from your mouth flows like water. That’s what the title is about,” says artist Patrick Martinez, “The art just streams from us. All of the artists in the show speak honestly to the viewer, visually.”
Even Flow will depict artists’ unique expression and approach to contemporary visual art. Martinez’s work consists of lush and colorful paintings as well as distinct neon and sculptural works, De La Cruz illustrates an amalgamation of art and design, and Roper’s mixed media pieces are filled with vivid colors, movements and inspiration he derives form his surroundings.
“We’re thrilled to host all three of these amazing artists’ work under one roof,” says Dustin Orlando, Owner and Curator of Circuit 12, “We’re beyond excited to welcome back Patrick Martinez after the success of Dream Continuum, and are pleased to include the talented Aaron De La Cruz and James Roper to our gallery’s roster of featured artists.”
This is the first time all three artists will be exhibiting together. Even Flow’s opening reception will be held on Saturday, October 13th.

About Aaron De La Cruz
Aaron De La Cruz’s work, thought minimal and direct at first, tends to overcome barriers of separation and freely steps in and out of the realms of design, graffiti and illustration. The parameters he has chosen to work within actually allow him to free himself and react to the very limitations he has created.
This overriding structure and the lack of deliberation while moving within creates a tension when encountering his work due to the almost computer generated grid like systems he creates by unplanned markmaking. The act and the marks themselves are very primal in nature but tend to take on distinct and sometimes higher meanings in the broad range of mediums and contexts they appear in and on. www.aarondelacruz.com
