Emilio Perez on his new painting for Appropriate Disruption

November 11, 2014

We checked in on Brooklyn-based painter Emilio Perez while he was working on his contribution to Appropriate Disruption, the upcoming group show at Jacob Lewis Gallery. Emilio uses a distinctive technique of building up color on his panels, then cutting away layers in rapid, free-associative strokes. His work is instantly identifiable as his own, but in his titles he references the influence that music and other sensory experiences have on his imagery.

Appropriate Disruption will be on view at Jacob Lewis Gallery November 21—December 20, and an opening reception will be held on Thursday, November 20, 6-8pm.
