Works by James Perrin 

When: Tuesdays-Saturdays. Continues through Sept. 25 2010
After their Right to Assemble series brought unexpected excitement to the slow summer season, Zeitgeist now heads into autumn by committing an about-face, abandoning its group-show programming for a solo exhibit. Painter James Perrin's large canvases are colorful expressionist abstracts that boast exciting surfaces as well as rich, deep fields. By abstracting familiar figures, while also presenting truthful renderings of CAT scan images and other not-readily-recognized ephemera, Perrin invests his paintings with an element of mystery — an underrepresented commodity that many artists seem to mistake for vagueness. Perrin makes use of anamorphic techniques that allow abstracted elements to suddenly transform into recognizable figures, depending on the viewer's perspective. Here's to hoping that this show raises awareness of Perrin's work, making him a more recognizable figure in the Nashville art scene.
