Pat Perry Solo Show — The House You Came From — Rome, Italy — 12 NOV - 3 DEC 2016
Dorothy Circus Gallery, Via dei Pettinari 76
Dorothy Circus Gallery proudly presents THE HOUSE YOU CAME FROM, a series of selected drawings from 2012 until 2016 by the Michigan based artist Pat Perry in what will be his debut solo exhibition in Europe. Often described as an “adventurer”, Pat Perry, coveted by art galleries and collectors, is an artist from Grand Rapids, Michigan, currently based in Detroit, who writes and makes pictures working itinerantly both with paintings and illustrations through careful and cautious observation. He crisscrosses the country, documenting his travels through art, whether sketching a waitress in a diner or photographing a field through a window. As a matter of fact, the lands of the North, colourful people, music, and the ordinary streets of the Midwest inspire him a lot for his works. The results of thousands miles of risqué travelling and several rolls of film later, paint a unique and romantic portrait of some of the characters of the American West.
