Scramble is an art book showcasing the works of Argentine born Los Angeles based painter Atilio Pernisco with an essay by writer and art critic Pablo Baler. The book is bilingual: English and Spanish.
This book showcases the most recent work by Argentine born Los Angeles based artist Atilio Pernisco and is also presented as a catalogue to his show SCRAMBLE, exhibited at the dA Center for the Arts in Pomona, California. SCRAMBLE is a surreal and stunning exhibition of oils, monotypes, charcoals and drawings. According to author, Pablo Baler, whose essay is featured in SCRAMBLE, "These paintings elicit a unique dialogue between the tradition of abstract and figurative art; between purely formal explorations and recognizable narratives, thus staking for itself a unique language of ambiguities and uncertainties. Pernisco's visual (and visceral) uncoverings challenge those primordial dichotomies between the uncanny and the familiar, the personal and the public, the rational and the instinctive, even the humorous and the hopeless." "Since the dawn of the historical avant-gardes at the beginning of the 20th century, it has been a staple of art critics to predict the end of painting with that ill-reputed question: is easel painting dead? Many artists since have defy the logic of this question, from Francis Bacon to Jenny Saville, from William de Kooning to Carlos Alonso… And once again, Atilio Pernisco's art offers its own answers to that deep-rooted anxiety with a vibrancy and a vitality that manages to summon our own fears, dreams and fantasies." Pernisco's works have appeared in many group and solo exhibitions in Los Angeles and around the world.
