Park Life Gallery is proud to present Through the Blinds, an exhibit of new paintings from Eric Shaw.

The show opens Friday, June15th, 2012 and runs through July 15th. Opening Reception June 15th from 7 to 9pm.

Eric Shaw is a self-taught artist who currently lives in Brooklyn, New York. His bold and often disquieting paintings, executed exclusively in gouache, depict a world of totemic grotesquery where disaffected biomorphs lounge seductively among the detrital emblems of early modern abstraction; the waiting room of a new-age dentist in which Miró, Bosch, and Patrick Nagel sit discussing the advent of the Internet. Through the use of a self-restrictive visual vocabulary, Shaw explores the creative potential of semi-blindness and the almost pathological intrigue of obsessive reduplication. One’s eyes are one’s blinds, and only achieve second sight through the partial obfuscation of the real.
