Rising Star Elbert Perez Shares New Oil Paintings and Sculptures at Rachel Uffner Gallery

Credited with launching the careers of both Shara Hughes and Hilary Pecis, Rachel Uffner Gallery presents a solo exhibition of another rising star, Elbert Perez.⁠⁠

Brought to our attention by the gallery at Felix Art Fair in February, Perez draws upon the complexities of the human psyche.⁠⁠

Here, a duck (referencing Jean-Baptiste Oudry's The White Duck) is held upside down by the foot with a scrap of paper adorned with a cartoon illustrating the cause of its untimely fate.⁠⁠

The Long Nap can be seen in his solo show at the New York gallery, alongside a number of other oil paintings and sculptures.⁠⁠
