Rae Perry, “Monachopsis,” oil, 30 x 30 cm.

Three talented painters under the age of 30 are the focus of Arcadia Contemporary’s July exhibition schedule. If they haven’t already, collectors will take note.

On view from July 15 through the 31st, “Three Under Thirty” at Arcadia Contemporary in Culver City, California will feature paintings by Daniel Bilmes, Katie Whipple, and Rae Perry. Bilmes’ art explores many subjects, including figurative, still life, wildlife, and more. However, a common thread of deep personal exploration runs through his oeuvre. Katie Whipple has been climbing the ranks of representational painters for several years. More recently, the New York-based artist has focused her creative vision and superb technique on floral compositions. Finally, the sensuous and evocative figurative paintings of Rae Perry round out the show. Perry’s melancholic female subjects, in various states of dress and nudity, are often displayed in domestic, intimate settings, begging the viewer to extrapolate powerful narratives.
