Dean Dempsey
Cue the Music

213 Bowery, NYC
Apr 5th – 15th, 2019


Palo Gallery’s inaugural exhibition “Cue The Music” will feature multimedia visual artist Dean Dempsey’s latest body of work. Harmonizing loud visuals and intricate detail to explore eccentricity through texture and color, Dempsey evokes ceremony and pastime with detractive composition and painterly execution. Through his mastery of palette and form, his most recent series forces familiar consciousness onto unfamiliar terrains, begging the question “have we met before?”
