Opening July 15th, Inner State Gallery is proud to present Inertia featuring new works from Dave “Persue” Ross
. Highlighting entirely new bodies of work from three artists that are perpetually in motion, Inertia showcases each artist’s tirelessly crafted styles, honed on the streets and refined in the gallery for this unique show. Operating seamlessly both individually as well as an unstoppable trio, each artist drives forward to what promises to be an unforgettable exhibition.
Drawing from within himself, Toronto’s Kwest delves deep into an entirely new cohesive body of work, which finds the mixed media artist challenging himself with new techniques and applications combining his two parallel worlds. Meticulously crafted over the past two decades, these sculptural works flow fluidly between evolving outdoor public installations and cleanly refined 3D gallery works.
“To create a sculptural assemblage in the studio and then take it into a public environment to paint answered my constant pursuit to challenge myself, and the work I produce. This work truly captures that action, the creative state I enter in both genres, and the unique stories evolved as each set is produced. Through the production of each series, two different pieces are produced, one on the surface of the work and one on the background it was painted on. This also simultaneously provides two arenas of viewing, one with an undetermined course of momentum in the public, and the other a purposeful display in gallery. The inertia in these actions displays both states of definition,” Kwest says of his latest body of work.
