George P. Perez explores mundane situations and day-to-day scenarios in his work. Utilizing everyday images and unconventional processes, he creates collages, installations, and sculptures. He bridges a view of neglected photography to preserve sentimental characteristics in stereotypical images to reconstruct their significance and importance. By reconstructing its material nature he plays into his bilingual upbringing and interprets another type of fluent language– to create patterns and present ambiguous views in visual structures.
Perez received a BFA from the University of Colorado Boulder and is currently an MFA Candidate under the Gilbert Fellowship at Cranbrook Academy of Art, MI. He has been an Artist-in-Residence at RedLine Contemporary Art Center and at the Denver Children's Museum. He is a recipient of the MCA Denver Octopus Initiative Grant. Perez has been a Photo-Facilitator with Working Assumptions based out of Berkeley, CA, and part of the M12 cohort, an award-winning artist collective that specializes in rural aesthetics and landscape.
