"Party Hat" is a somewhat three dimensional figurative study of a kid's birthday party hat suspended in a pinkish-brown light / dark checkerboard grid that intensifies it's presence - sort makes you feel like it's taken flight off the canvas. It was inspired by the actual hat (I still have it) at a birthday party for one of my grand kids during our 2009 biennial family vacation on LBI (Long Beach Island).
It's another work from an object out of a real life experience expressing the grandeur of an Ordinary Thing. And, it was a featured work at my 2012 NYC Chelsea show "Ordinary Things" and referred too (see below) in a review of the show by Gallery and Studio Magazine.
"Perlmutter’s acrylic on canvas 'Party Hat' ... is set against one of the checkerboard grids --- of pale and paler pink hues so faint as to almost be invisible, making the central shape also suggest one of Kenneth Noland’s triangular 'chevron' shaped canvases turned upside-down." -- Ed McCormack
