London-based artist Dan Perfect's paintings are collages of sorts. Not of their media, but their aura. Ambiguous forms and referential icons are scattered across his canvases, and the result is not disjointed or trivial, but rich and striking. With imagery that echoes Miro and Picasso as much as it does Basquiat, without ever mimicking, Perfect has carved out a new and unique vision filled with humor, chaos, darkness and invention. His newest show, which also includes drawings, can be seen from noon to 5 p.m. Wednesdays through Saturdays through December 6 at Road Agent, 2909-A Canton St. Call 214-749-4049.
Wednesdays-Saturdays, 12-5 p.m. Starts: Nov. 21. Continues through Dec. 6, 2008
