Opening - First Friday, December 1st 6 - 10 pm

Denver, CO – Bitfactory Gallery is pleased to present a group exhibition of new works. The Some Assembly Required exhibit will run from December 1, 2017 through January 5, 2018 with an artist reception Third Friday, December 15th from 6:00 p.m. until 10:00 p.m.
Three artists will be featured in the show: Jason Cope, Art by 13, and Perle. All three, in some sense, are assembling their pieces for this show. Cope works painting found objects, 13 assembling the ideas and images of her paintings, and Perle building acrylic shadow boxes for a completely original display of her digital imagery.
Cope paints and molds pieces of found, everyday objects into fantastic, yet melancholy 2D and 3D paintings. Art by 13 has the keen ability to mix imagery from Pop, Modern and Abstract art into paintings that tell poignant, socially relevant stories. Perle moves and twists her digital imagery into surrealistic, technology driven statements about society as a whole.
Jason Cope is a self taught artist based in Denver, Colorado. His work is influenced by the unknown, the unseen, and this strange phenomenon we call existence. Working somewhere between collage and assemblage, he creates scenes of complex systems that drive and destroy this vast ecology of nature and ourselves.
Art by 13 uses a vast array of mediums and techniques to achieve an unending variety of visual effects. Mediums explored include but not limited to acrylic, watercolor, oil sticks, spray paint, and ink. Music, icons, history, literature, painters, and Jungian psychology set the tone of the project. These works exist between tragedy and humor, truth and fiction, insecurity and self validation. This artistic endeavor seeks to nonverbally question the artist and the audience.
Perle has learned from local fine artist Ravi Zupa and world renown digital artist Android Jones and has studied art and design for a decade. She looks for inspiration in the natural world, in feelings, in touch, in sound, in emotion, and in sight. She integrates emotions & nature with the technological world into images that evoke something ethereal & otherworldly.
