Ro2 Art says
April 4 - May 4, 2015
Ro2 Art Downtown, 110 North Akard, Dallas, Texas
OPENING RECEPTION, Saturday, April 4, 7-10pm

Ro2 Art is pleased to announce HAUTE FAUXX, an exhibition by Texas-based artist Jesse Meraz -- this much anticipated exhibition, his first solo show in nearly a decade, will open to much fanfare on Saturday, April 4, 2015, and will continue though April, with special engagements taking place during Dallas Arts Week and Dallas Art Fair weekend.

In his recent body of work, Jesse Meraz’s interests lie in the ambivalent relationship between art and fashion. He shares his visual perspective on the cultural phenomenon of the gap from perception to reality in the human pursuit of power, status, and the desire to be popular. HAUTE FAUXX is a collection of “displays” that employ the trappings of falsehoods, fantasy, and enchantments that relate to consumers’ attraction to “prestige” goods, fabricated truth and glossy lifestyles.

ABOUT THE ARTIST:

Jesse Meraz currently lives and works in Fort Worth, TX and received his BFA from University of North Texas, Denton. He has exhibited both regionally and nationally and is represented by Ro2 Gallery, Dallas, TX. Meraz was a member of Good/Bad Art Collective (G/BAC) in Denton, 1996-2000, and recently was a participating artist in CURTAINS, a G/BAC project for the Nasher XChange, a city-wide exhibition in Dallas, TX presented by the Nasher Sculpture Center, October 19, 2013 - February 16, 2014.
