For her sixth solo exhibition with Sullivan Goss, Angela Perko draws inspiration from the garden, exploring the places where nature and art meet. She has produced four monumental garden pictures and a suite of floral and fruit still life.
Perko cites the composition, the theatricality, and the art of successful garden design. Gardeners use nature to make art, and Perko uses art to capture nature that is delightfully artistic.
For her, the history of art is an open and vital story, one that she feels free to rearrange and reinterpret. She blends one idea together with another, interleaves the arrangement with Santa Barbara’s visual culture, and binds it all together in rhythmic compositions of vivid and subtle colors, flat planes, and modeled shapes. The results are captivating.
There will be an exhibit opening on Thurs., Oct. 1 from 5–8 p.m. at Sullivan Goss, 11 E. Anapamu St. The gallery is open 10 a.m.–5:30 p.m. daily, and the exhibit will be on display until Nov. 29. For more information, please visit the website or call 805/730-1460.
