The MAC will showcase a new body of work and performance by Dallas-based artist Jeff Parrott, which considers abstraction and painting in relation to space and time. ‘The Universe Is a Room We All Live In and I Am a Modern Shaman and We Are All Aliens,’ on view February 6 through February 20, reveals the artist in his natural environment – his studio. This space is transcendent: microscopic organisms manifest as obscure shapes, creatures morph, and contours, colors, textures and shapes evolve on the canvas. ‘The Universe Is A Room’ records the unseen, the mind of the artist, through paintings of creatures, phenomena, and places. Viewers will have the opportunity to witness the inspiration behind Parrott’s painting process through his sound and video performances, which he dubs “psyexpression,” on Saturday, February 6 from 7-11 and a closing performance Friday, February 19, beginning at 8pm.
