About Cue the Music:
Palo Gallery’s first exhibition will be showing works by Dean Dempsey at 213 Bowery from the 5th to the 15th of April. Entitled Cue the Music, Palo will be exhibiting Dean’s latest body of work.
Harmonizing loud visuals and intricate detail to explore eccentricity through texture and colour, evoking ceremony and pastime with detractive composition and painterly execution. Through Dean Dempsey’s mastery of palette and form, the Cue the Music series forces familiar consciousness onto unfamiliar terrains, begging the question, have we met before?
