Lance Peacock's "Obvious Gestures" in Access II Gallery
Access II Gallery is pleased to show the work of Pleasant Grove artist Lance Peacock. "Obvious Gestures" will open with on Friday November 19, from 6 to 9 PM, during the Salt Lake City Gallery Stroll and remain open through December 18.
Peacock feels that portraits need not be formal. As a matter of fact, he believes that they need not always be head-shots. Hands or body, surroundings or even placement, can depict what a person does for a living, the stage of their life, what they have accomplished or failed to accomplish. He says, "the older we become, the opportunities are fewer, decisions are often made for us and adventures can become hazards. We look back on our lives and quite often live off of the memories we have made for ourselves.
Lance Peacock found this to be true in his own life, as he experienced a massive stroke at age 39. "Even though I have been dealt cards that I didn't want, I found that I could exchange a few of them and ask the dealer for more."
His newest adventure has taken him into the life of art, both as an artist and an art admirer.
