Grace Rosario Perkins renders maximalist, color-driven paintings in acrylic, spray paint, and collage on canvas. She is a free-stylist, working from intuition, and quickly; her marks are malleable, and subject to near-perpetual change as paintings materialize. The works map relationships between colors, forms, feelings, people, peoples, the past and present. They are landscapes between the mind and the world, streams of consciousness preoccupied with the ways in which life overlaps with other life. Perkins’ iconography is informed by sources as varied as bad graffiti, the NBA, and local antique malls in downtown Albuquerque, where she lives and works. She has recently incorporated family photographs, bingo cards, bumper stickers, cut remnants of past paintings, and more, forming a collage of signifiers. The works are not private, but intimate, suggesting that closeness is not only a series of codes, but its own code, both personal, familial, and complex. Open Fri 4–6pm and Sat 2–5pm, and by appointment.
