The Much-Anticipated Return of First Fridays at HeadDress
First Fridays are BACK! The weather is warmer, the heady excitement of spring is in the air, and we are ready to party! HeadDress is excited to announce the return of our First Friday celebration and art opening: Friday, April 4th from 7-10pm.
This first Friday, we are pleased to introduce the art of Jeromey Patterson. Jeromey is a smart and talented artist who combines street art and architecture. Here's a little bit about Jeromey in his own words:
I work mainly in abstracted architectural studies and portraiture. Doing street art when I was younger I quickly realized the codependency of the piece and the structure that it was on. What I do now is just a further exploration of that idea; a look at the sometimes strained conversation between the two while trying to showcase the personality of both. Broken and flattened structures screen and protect from the surrounding chaos, working with and against each other to create a contrasting cohesion.
Each piece is a portrait. Initially the subjects were structures, mostly by famous mid-century modern architects. This eventually led to incorporating more human and animal subjects, which I approach in much the same manner as the buildings. In these I have been taking that art/architecture conversation and expanding the view to be inclusive of the natural world, with a feeling of the impact of each upon the other.
Wow. Please join us in welcoming Jeromey to the walls of HeadDress on Friday, April 4th from 7-10 pm, and share in a celebration of art and spring! Can't wait to see you all there!
