Running Through The Forest, Trails of Uncertainty

September 15 - October 15, 2012
Opening reception on September 15, 6 - 9 pm
Artist talk on September 16, 12-2pm
 
 The series, "Running Through the Forest, Trails of Uncertainty", explores the artist's emotional and psychological challenges as filtered through the colors, energy and subtle impressions of the natural world. Varying in size from medium to large format, these works utilize mixed media collage or acrylic paint in deep, layered work that has come to signify Perlmutter's work.
 
The title of the new series is an apt reflection of the work, which examines the act of surrendering to uncertainty and connects with visual inspiration from the state's varied forests.
 
In the words of the artist, "The forest is all-encompassing. Once inside you are in another world. And painting is like a forest path, filled with uncertainty and unknown destination. This work is about using an inner compass of memories and feelings to decide how to proceed. Who knows where those decisions may lead? Ultimately, we're in charge but out of control."
 
Running Through The Forest, Trails Of Uncertainty is an evolution of the artist's signature style. Her paintings are mixed media with three-dimensional elements including canvas, wire, metal, paper and book covers in subtle, layered schemes. Perlmutter's colors are often muted and compelling, with slight changes in shade and value. Shape and line underscore the pervasive energy and mood of her work.
 
Perlmutter's work was most recently seen at the San Francisco Fine Art Faire. She has shown in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Kansas. The artist has large pieces on display in Seoul, Korea's Traum Haus, the Mirage and the Hilton in Las Vegas and New York's Casino Niagara.
