Dustin Pevey is a process-oriented painter known for printed canvases layered with paint, digital compositions, and found images derived from the mundane visuals of everyday life in the twenty-first century. “Still Lifes,” “Landscapes,” and “Meditation Paintings” are populated by advertisements, logos, graffiti, articles of clothing, cartoons, internet image grabs, paintings, details of paintings, and photos of digital prints of paintings. Taken out of context, these elements overlap and obscure one another evoking the distraction, competition, and obsession of life mediated by computer windows.
Pevey’s work has been presented in solo exhibitions at Retrospective Gallery in Hudson, New York, Marfa Book Company in Texas, and Bill Brady Miami, as well as a two person exhibition at Galeria Massimo Audiello in Mexico City. His art has also been shown in group exhibitions at Galerie Gabriel Rolt in Amsterdam, Johannes Vogt Gallery in New York, and Angstrom Gallery in Los Angeles.
