In their first Dallas showcase Texas artist and native, Preston Light, displays a combination of works on canvas completed from winter 2020 through Spring of 2022. The title, Transitive Nightfall, comes from the classic song Dark Star by the Grateful Dead and is meant to be a glimpse into his creative process and influences. Usually working two to three jobs, the entirety of these pieces are made working into the night and serve as a public diary. The inspiration for each piece comes from the artist’s auditory and emotional synesthesia. Many of the pieces are titled after a song that corresponds to internal visuals that the artist sees and feels. All pieces are meant to serve as comforting abstractions for the viewer to take solace and find a moment of peace within. There are no intentional forms or figures within them. Only the hope of restful nights and beautiful mornings.
Come join the opening reception for Preston Light's first solo show in Dallas, TX at the Janette Kennedy Gallery anytime between 5:00-9:00 PM on May 14th, 2022. There will be refreshments, wonderful people, dozens of original pieces for sale, live guitar improvisations by Little Universe's own Cameron O'Reilly from 6:00-8:00 PM, and your beautiful face!
