Dan Perkins American, b. 1988


Dan Perkins lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. He received his MFA from American University in 2013. Recent exhibitions include a solo at Deanna Evans Projects, and group shows at Sperone Westwater, Hashimoto Contemporary, Launch F18, Mana Contemporary, and elsewhere. His work is held in the collections of Capital One, Fidelity Investments, the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities, the Katzen Museum of American University, as well as in many private collections. His work has also been featured in Juxtapoz Magazine, Booooooom, Wired Italia, Art of Choice, Archive 00, Artsy, ArtMaze Mag, and the Washington Post.


His current paintings channel architectural motifs that connote space: crossing through a threshold,

gazing through a window, passing from one plane to another. However the spaces depicted sit in an ethereal haze, where color and form are primary. Scale, time and space are all negotiable, up to the viewer to frame and understand.
