FAVIO MORENO: WHEN IT'S ALL SAID
                           
Dallas artist Favio Moreno presents a new body of pop constructivist paintings with sardonic titles which hint at tragicomic characters, their faces made up of geometric shapes in primary colors. The artist grew up in California and Mexico, before settling in Texas. His hard-edged abstract paintings reveal a sensibility based in abstract constructivism, through his use of simplified floating geometric shapes, and pop art, in the bold, primary colors he works with. He graduated from The Art Institute in 2001, and has had solo shows at Atama, The Public Trust, neighborhood, The Safe Room, and the Sour Grapes artist space, all in Dallas.

DWAYNE CARTER: THE END OF MADNESS

 

Since the 1980s, Dwayne Carter has been making figurative paintings about constructed narratives. About fifteen years ago he expanded that practice to include fotonovelas. The End of Madness is the latest release of this self-published series, depicting the psychological fallout of characters in difficult and often transgressive settings. In addition to paintings and copies of his zine, the artist will present a new direction in his work: small scale wood and clay relief carvings. He has had solo exhibitions at the Kessler Theater, Richland College, and Plush Gallery in Dallas, the Ida Greene Gallery in Sherman, and Heights Theater in Houston, and has also shown multimedia work in the Aurora New Media Exhibition and Dallas Video Festival.

 

NARONG TINTAMUSIK: RED OBLIVION

 

Narong Tintamusik was born in Dallas, and lived ten years in Bangkok, Thailand before returning here to complete his studies at The University of Texas at Dallas. In his current body of work, he explores psychological caves as a form of self-portraiture, to reclaim an innocence lost through the traumas of abuse. His abstract paintings, installation, and sculptural work draw from his own lived experience, as filtered through imagery informed by Buddhism, Thai folk tales, and a fascination with natural environments. The artist has had solo shows at 500X Gallery in Dallas, and Tarleton State University in Stephenville, and was a recent DeGolyer Memorial Fund award recipient through the Dallas Museum of Art.

THE STORY OF

PLUSH GALLERY

gallery_panorama.jpg

Between 2000 and 2012, Plush Gallery produced over 60 art exhibitions from their home base of Dallas, in addition to participating in 15 art fairs and curatorial projects in cities across the U.S., such as New York, Chicago, Miami, Houston, and Santa Fe.

 

During that time, the experimental space won two Best Alternative Gallery awards from the Dallas Observer, and had a nomadic nature with five locations, beginning in the Cedars neighborhood, then moving to a vintage parking garage and high rise in downtown Dallas, before settling into the offices of Cunningham Architects in the Design District. In 2012, owner and founder Randall Garrett closed the space to focus on his own work as an artist and teacher. In September 2018, after a six year hiatus, Garrett reopened Plush Gallery, adding artists from Mexico City to a budding stable of emerging Texas and U.S. artists.
