Ro2 Art Gallery presents Ray-Mel Cornelius: "Every Day" opening reception
Ro2 Art presents “Every Day,” a solo exhibition featuring new works by local Oak Cliff artist Ray-Mel Cornelius.
As in his past work, Cornelius is concerned with reflecting on personal experience and how that experience can be interpreted as both objective reality and the creation of an individualistic mythology. For his new series Every Day, the artist turns his attention away from the rural and wilderness milieu of his prior work towards the urban environment that he encounters on a daily basis. In redirecting his focus, the artist fully explores the diverse Oak Cliff neighborhood that has been his home for 26 years, representing its heritage, diversity, and charm with a meticulously considered use of color, form, texture, and scale.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through June 24.
