posted by – 02/02/11 @ 12:40pm


5. He’s a Nashville native–there is nothing we love more than some homegrown talent. Especially when that talent takes New York City by storm.

4. De Palma is not afraid to embrace color–from Devil and the Deep Blue Sea, to Taking a Dive For the Queen, his works are awash in unimaginably bright shades.

3. His keen wit–“I have only recently emerged from the Cave of Fire, Water, Ice, Smoke, and Mirrors through the Academy of Education to the Institutionalized Greed of Leveraged Mergers and the Golden Age of Class Consolidation and Private Property into the Light of Hometown Celebrity Sunshine!”

2. Parrot Opera–Whether it’s the painted utopia in the background, or the velvety curtain revealing the parrot, this work’s intricate elements invite open-ended interpretation. It’s works like Parrot Opera that remind us why De Palma can so aptly “open possibilities rather than restrict freedoms.”

1. He’ll be right in our backyard this weekend–This Friday, February 4th at Tinney Contemporary from 5:30-8:00 P.M. you can engage in a dialogue with De Palma himself at our Inaugural Collectors Art Night. Or, stop by on Saturday, February 5th from 6:00 – 9:00 P.M. for the First Saturday Art Crawl.
