February 22 - March 14, 2020
Life can get you down following the news these days, but artists keep fighting their way through the blues to move forward and create. Arguably, art becomes more crucial as an experience during times of political divisiveness, even when the work itself is not politically confrontational. In a certain sense, being an artist and creating work is itself a political act in times such as these. The first show of the new year at Plush features seven artists, six of them rising talents building their followings on Instagram and one veteran of the Dallas art scene.
Artists in this group show include:
Norman Kary – new collage paintings, a departure from the assemblage work he is known for.
Favio Moreno – pop constructivist inspired abstract paintings of funny faces.
Brent Ozaeta – intricate patterned pastel colored tondo paintings and prints.
Stevie Roonie – sculptural works that contrast raw materials with low-end technology.
SM Sanz – Dallas based Panamá artist making paintings and prints of powerful young women.
Hunter Wright – complex and textural graphic prints of battle scenes and raw characters.
Gem You – explores queer identity through painted fingerprint grids in a variety of bright colors.
Opening: February 22, 2020 | 6–9 pm
