Petr Shvetsov | Tex Mex
July 26 - August 31 2019
Ro2 Art | Downtown Pop-Up
1508 Commerce St. Dallas, TX 75201
Ro2 is proud to present Tex Mex, a solo exhibition featuring works by Russian artist, Petr Shvetsov. The show will run from July 26 through August 31, 2019. There will be an artist reception held on Friday, July 26 from 6-8 PM, and an art talk held Sunday July 28 from 2-4 PM at Ro2’s Downtown Pop-Up located at 1508 Commerce Street, Dallas, TX 75201.
Petr Shvetsov’s first solo exhibition at Ro2 Art is a collection of paintings of Tex-Mex cuisine rendered as a ‘glitched’ depiction of the iconic dishes. From tacos and tortas to rice and beans, Shvetsov’s food portraits convey the warmth as well as the fleeting gratification one receives upon encountering the cuisine. Interested in the connections between food and culture as well as the role food can play in formulating a cultural identity, Shvetsov creates his paintings to exhibit our obsession with food. Even when overdone, Tex-Mex is always rich and welcoming much like that of Shvetsov’s native Russian cuisine. His portraits juxtapose the hearty meals with harsh black backgrounds, having various hues of paint pulled across the surface. He describes his series as an homage to Dutch painting which he deeply admires.

Alexander Revier | Spangled
July 2 - August 19 2019
ARTIST RECEPTION: Thursday July 11, 6-8 PM
Ro2 Art | The Magnolia Theatre Second Floor Bar
3699 McKinney Avenue, Suite 100, Dallas TX 75204
Ro2 is proud to present Spangled, a solo exhibition featuring new works by artist Alexander Revier. The show will run from July 2 through August 19, 2019. There will be an artist reception held on Thursday, July 11 from 6-8 PM at the Second floor bar of the Magnolia Theatre located at 3699 McKinney Avenue, Suite 100, Dallas TX 75204.
Alexander Revier’s second solo show at Ro2 Art focuses predominantly on color and form, saturating the entire picture plane with a miscellany of elements. Drawing upon his experience growing up as a second-generation German immigrant living in Irving, Texas, absorbing the influences and language of the diverse cultural makeup, Revier is interested in how visual art exists as a universal language. Spangled becomes a metaphor for diversity as the artist amalgamates and mingles unexpected elements, color and design together in a lively maximalist assemblage.
