“Parallel” is curated around the transformative effects of light on color. Perkins and Royal, longtime friends who met in the early days of Pilchuck Glass School, each explore and stretch the inherent qualities of their respective mediums. Perkins exploits the transparency and reflection achieved with the use of resin to increase the impact of his beautiful abstract color field paintings. Over the course of Royal’s glass career, he has mastered an ability to manipulate the formal characteristics of glass in order to emphasize the movement of light through shape and color.

“I pull from my memories. Growing up in a missionary orphanage on the Cherokee nation set the path for me. Being raised in an institution fostered individuality. I never felt a part of anything. I am a man without a country. The way that I looked at nature around me, gave me a silent, romantic feeling and a sense of wonder which somehow gave me my place. In quiet moments alone looking at fields or the ocean gave me silent comfort. That narrative provided me with a sense of belonging to this world. That is what I paint. Other people feel this isolation as well, paints are an entrance to share our lives together.” - Danny Perkins
