Ro2 Art is proud to present Elysian Aftertaste, a solo exhibition featuring new works by artist Nathan Porterfield. The show will run from June 9 through July 7, 2018. There will be an opening reception held Saturday, June 9, from 7-10pm at the Ro2 Art Downtown Pop-Up located at 1508 Commerce Street in downtown Dallas.
Nathan Porterfield uses accessible, common materials such as corrugated cardboard, zip ties, and broom bristles to explore the complex role of the individual in today’s culture. Porterfield refers to the abstracted characters in his work as “Units of Resistance;” while each unit is given the opportunity to express its perspectives, sensibilities, and convictions, it is also an active contributor to a system far greater than itself. Elysian Aftertaste is an exhibition comprised of works that express personal individuality and a homogeneous spirit; an homage to those who have stood for change, and therein been the backbone of progress.
