PELLET at 49 & 55 North First Street
PELLET (aka Kyle Perera) has several new works up at 49 & 55 South First Street just past Santa Clara Street in downtown San Jose. The exhibit will be on view 24/7 from the sidewalk through November 2007.
There are two titled exhibits, the one at No. 49 is Daydreams Turn to Nightmares. Pellet says of this display: Almost all of my little characters are either obliviously happy, in a state of awakened sadness or disappointment, or too stupid to realize all of the destruction around them, as well as their impending doom.
The No. 55 space is titled: That's Not Good! The monkey paintings are fairly simple and easy to digest, while some of the pieces in between them are saturated/overloaded with information, kind of like a normal conversation full of facial and body gestures, inside jokes, intonation, and a million other signals that we have to take in and put into context in order to communicate even the most basic, crude, unclever joke.
