Months ago, Isabel wrote about an emerging artist called Penelope Przekop. Today, Saturday, we can enjoy one of her works at the premiere edition of Parallax International Art Fair in NY. ‘How Did We Get Here?’ continues her lines of paradoxes and confronted figures in imaginary spaces plenty of colors and dreams. With her, we can enjoy another magnificent artist too, Karin Perez. With ‘How Did We Get Here’ we can enjoy another 10 more works of the artist.
The passes are free, and you can book them here:
Penelope Przekop spent the first half of her adult life writing fiction, and then began painting in 2008. Her early work caught the eye of Bob Hogge (Monkdogz Urban Art) in 2009. It has rapidly evolved and has now been shown in New York City, Philadelphia, California, Italy and Nicaragua, including exhibitions focusing on human rights sponsored by Amnesty International. Her work has been exhibited by Monkdogz Urban Art (NYC), Spazio-Tempo Arte (Italy), and is also represented by Galeria Pleyades (Nicaragua / Central America), and Alex De Cross Gallery (Belgium).
Her art has been acquired by the Caserta, Italy Museum of Modern Art. In addition, her work has been selected for Barebrush (NYC) by curators Bob Meuller, Tom Picard, and Charles Yoder (Salmagundi Club, NYC), Joyce Pommer (Franklin 54 Gallery, NYC), and Brigitte St. Ouen (32 Fine Arts, NYC), among others.
Her art is primarily a blend of acrylic, pastel, and ink on canvas.
Karin Perez was a professional dancer until the age of 28 when she gave birth to her eldest daughter. Karin studied at Ascola School for the Visual Arts and graduated as a graphic designer. She began painting in 2004 during a five year stay in Paris.
Karin’s art has been shown in NYC, Tel Aviv, Paris, Italy and San Francisco. She has been represented by Monkdogz Urban Art (NYC) and Expressions Fine Art Gallery (Tel Aviv) since 2008. Her work now resides in many places around the globe including the National Collection of the Leumi Bank. It was also been auctioned at Artcurial (Paris).
Her style has changed through the years from urban art to contemporary abstract. Her work is created using oil, acrylic, ink and sewing.
“………….And while Perez is a splendid painter, adding a sensuous element to her precisely delineated architectural forms with smooth yet sumptuously pigmented surfaces, she is also one of precious few contemporary artists who successfully integrate elements of computer technology into her oeuvre without diminishing its effect. In fact, her urban iconography lends itself auspiciously to digital imaging in prints where she blends mixed media, photography, and computer painting techniques in a seamless synthesis.”
