Shade Projects is proud to present Cact-Us: A Show About Growing Together, the solo exhibition of Jesse Perry in Shade Gallery at the monOrchid. Marking his return and first solo exhibition Perry states, “This is a show about the beauty and humor of living in the Southwest, specifically Phoenix.” He creates captivating work in all mediums with a style all his own, utilizing bold lines, vibrant color palette, and pop infused style with a brand new body of work. Perry went on to say, “I felt the powerful and persistent image of the cactus would serve as perfect plain of exploration to further convey this concept and represent the people that make up this city, prickly but beautiful.” “His artwork speaks to ideas of unity and community laced with settle messages often saturated with humor and amusing characters of the Southwest that blend his love of the valley, pop culture and his infectious personality”, states Shade Projects Curator, Nicole Royse.
