Karen Piloto’s most recent works in acrylic on acrylic, reverse painting, are being exhibited in the lobby of the Verona, 13330 Noel Road, Dallas 75240, across the street from Macy’s at the Galleria Mall. There is free guest parking at the Verona.
Looking back, looking forward. The past, the present. The point where these vectors coincide is today.
Viewing my works selected for this open studio reveals me to myself as a conceptual artist all along. The juxtaposition of earlier works with current ones reveals the ever present influence of concept.
In my artistic expression much remains the same, yet a shift in perspective is evident. My desire to see the wider picture, my concern for human rights, my connection to esoteric teachings are continuing. Perhaps the shift is a more universal and less personal expression.
Today, concept holds a more conscious, more mature place in my creative process. It may initiate creativity or reveal itself through the production of a work. Creation is an alchemical process between me, the natural and man-made objects, materials, time, space, and the idea.
Crossing over the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge continue west on Singleton Boulevard to Sylvan Avenue (Ray’s Gun Shop is on the corner).
At the light, take a left onto Sylvan Avenue.
Take a left at the first street. This is Fabrication Street.
There is no street sign due to construction. It is across the street from Duluth Street. J & R Recycling is on the corner of Fabrication.
Go down pass the graffiti buildings, some of the best in Dallas!
On the right is 516 Fabrication, a building with a blue band.
Go through the gate and park for free.
