Devora Perez focuses on the porosity of forms/frames by playing with the mutable line between painting and sculpture as historical constructs. Her works reference painting or use it as a point of departure through systemic and overlapping investigations of support, auxiliary support, paint, and the wall. Perez’s works are fashioned from wood, concrete, vellum, and plexiglass, among other quotidian elements. The works similarly raise questions about the relationship among object and viewer, the domestic sphere, and the built environment.
Devora Perez lives and works in Miami. She received her bachelor’s degree from New World School of the Arts in 2016, and her Master of Fine Arts from Florida International University in 2020. Perez participated in a one-year residency with Diaspora Vibe Cultural Arts Incubator and traveled to Belize on an international cultural exchange in 2018. She has participated in multiple group exhibitions in South Florida, most notably at Cisneros Fontanals Art Foundation in 2016 and the A.I.M Biennial in 2020 organized by william cordova. The most recent traveling group exhibition opened at the Corcoran Museum in Washington, D.C. on November 2019 and then at the Harvey B. Gantt Center for African-American Arts + Culture in Charlotte, North Carolina on September 2020. The exhibition, titled Inter|Sectionality: Diaspora Art from the Creole City, was curated by Rosie Gordon-Wallace.
