2014 – Participating Perception Solo Show @ Prohibition Gallery
Prohibition Gallery is honored to present, Participating Perception, by Los Angeles-based artist, Angie Jones. This new collection of works will be her first solo show at Prohibition Gallery and will feature her oil paintings on canvas. The opening reception of Participating Perception will be held at the Prohibition Gallery on August 16, 2014 from 6-9pm.
The exhibition will be on view through September 6th, 2014 and is free and open to the public. The faces of Participating Perception require your presence. The work begins not in the digital and not in the physical, but in the mix that our minds make of the two. The abstracted paintings mirror an 8-bit, computer generated counter culture. “Peak shift” palettes and a portrayal of persona through paint is inspired by Jones’ 20 year career as an artist working in Visual Effects, Video Games and Animation. Maintaining one foot in the past and another in the future Jones uses digital manipulation, 17th century oil painting techniques, sacred geometry, computer glitch and complex color theories. Participating Perception is a deconstructed, neo-geo perspective defined by creating something new, from something old and making it new again.
