“I Do Not Make Art for Anyone; I Make Art for You.”
Digital drawings by Jude Palace
Images will be projected larger than life on the exterior of our building during the opening, as well as displayed in our gallery and online.
In 2019, Palace began experimenting with contemporary and symbolic themes in his artwork, taking inspiration from events in his personal life. He continues to use his artwork as a therapeutic outlet – he had struggled with a panic disorder, anorexia, and depression. As a result of this, he began experiencing seizures and was diagnosed with generalized epilepsy. The goal of this collection is to pass on complex feelings from artist to viewer – not for the sake of empathy, but communication. Palace often references his own artwork to facilitate a dialogue that questions the genuine nature of the artwork, using a vibrant and eclectic style as a diversion to create a false sense of comfort.
