Cirque du Soleil artists take over Trifecta Gallery

In “The High Roller,” Armand Thomas photographed the Strip’s giant observation wheel from the same vantage point over a year’s time and pieced the images together in a layering process, creating a multidimensional landscape indistinguishable be-tween fantasy and reality.

For the same exhibit, Brien McCrea painted a portrait of himself applying lipstick while looking into a mirror. And Christina Russo’s painting of a passenger jet exhibits an aircraft neatly sliced into different cuts of meat, revealing the plane’s raw interior high above the clouds.

The only connecting factor in Parade at Trifecta Gallery is that each artist is employed by Cirque du Soleil’s Las Vegas productions. This is the fourth year Trifecta has partnered with the company to show the visual art of performers, wardrobe attendants, wig and prop technicians, and other cast and crew.

Don’t miss Brent Sommerhauser’s “Blue Floor,” a vitreographic print of notebook paper—appearing as three-dimensional flooring—from the artist who once created a tongue-in-groove wood floor to appear as if a sheet of paper.

Parade Through January 30, Monday-Wednesday and Friday, 11-5 p.m.; Thursday, 11-8 p.m.; Saturday and Sunday, 11-3 p.m. Trifecta Gallery, 366-7001.
