James "Dusty" Pendelton | Nocturne
June 11 - July 9, 2020, Kerrville, TX
Slate Gray Kerrville presents 'Nocture,’ featuring James "Dusty" Pendelton with the opening reception on June 11th from 5-8pm. Dusty Pendleton describes – we suspect tongue planted firmly in cheek – his elegantly hushed, darkly beguiling crepuscular landscapes, ofttimes populated nowadays by the echoes of people past, as “realist “ paintings. Collectively his work rolls up into the subjective vision of an artist (and largely self-taught art historian) who expresses himself through a simplified, non-naturalist style animated by an element of magic in which his human subjects are rendered as patterns on the scene, significant yes, but details that seamlessly blend into a memory of a moment spent en plein air, (outside).
