In this artist statement minute, Bryon Perdue Jr talks about Observation of Surface, part of exhibITion, amshot’s triannual art show for Oklahoma artists. Bryon Perdue is an Oklahoma City-based Native American mixed-media artist who creates layered, abstract artwork inspired by his interest in science. The show runs from January 23 to May 2020.
All ticket sales and 10 percent of art sales will benefit Inclusion In Art.
Perdue’s artwork has been recognized with a grant from the Oklahoma Visual Arts Coalition and an “Honorable Mention” award in the First Nations Biennial 2018 national juried exhibition at the Tubac Center of the Arts in Arizona.
“I draw inspiration from our growing understanding of the subatomic systems and mechanics involved in creating and maintaining our universe. It seems so absurd to me that billions upon billions of systems can be simultaneously cooperating in order to create our perceivable reality,” says Perdue.
Local IT services and software development firm amshot created exhibITion in 2018 to serve its core values of empowering the community, living passionately, and creating, as well as to promote local artists, give back to the community, and enjoy the company of fellow art-lovers.
Three times a year, amshot features an Oklahoma artist’s work in its office, host an art exhibition and sale, invites a local brewery to participate in the event, and donates proceeds to a charitable organization.
