''Perry House: Elegance/Violence''
Putting together a quarter-century’s worth of work by a single artist on a gallery wall allows viewers to see the way that artist has grown over the years, the way his style has changed, his focus shifted. That’s true for “Perry House: Elegance/Violence,” currently at the Art Car Museum. In press materials, House’s alternate-reality landscapes are described as “straddling the line between abstraction and realism” and “both beautiful and disturbing.”
“Stylistically, [my work] changes all the time,” says House. “Conceptually it has stayed the same — the fine line between horror and humor.” There’s an opening reception from 7 to 10 p.m. on June 2. Regular viewing hours are 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesdays through Sundays. Through September 2. 140 Heights. For information, call 713‑861-5526 or visit www.artcarmuseum.com.
Wednesdays-Sundays. Starts: June 2. Continues through Sept. 2, 2012
