Jeffrey Vincent Parise

Jeffrey Vincent Parise is a Los Angeles based painter whose work hangs and has shown in Europe and throughout the United States.
His shows have attracted a number of collectors and crowds as colorful and creative as the paintings themselves.

Come to the reception where you can see over 25 new works from 2010, enjoy some wine and speak to Jeffrey about his work.
The artist will offer signed copies of the book for $40.

The Book:

JEFFREY VINCENT PARISE - A Decade of Paintings 2000-2010

Many of the people who have been painted offer written testimonials, by way of poems, short stories and letters of their experience being painted.
Along with a number of written accounts by Jeffrey Vincent Parise, this book offers a rare and unique perspective into the painter/sitter relationship.

The book includes his series "Naked & Famous" in which he has painted over 100 life sized portraits of the community of artists, circus performers, writers, dancers, painters, photographers and actors in which he inhabits.

"Jeffrey Vincent Parise’s  A Decade of Paintings 2000-2010 thoughtfully investigates the creative process of painting while exploring the various roles of muse and artist...Rather than a traditionally passive role as muse, Parise invites his subjects to take an active part in his body of work. The discourse that emerges not only intensifies the paintings, but also produces an entirely new expressive entity..." 
- Sandra Orellana Sears, ARTWRIT magazine

"...Parise’s paintings bring alive the excessive worlds of Klimt, Freud and Schiele.  Upon returning from these realms, I must not forget that we are now in contemporary Los Angeles!..."             - Renaud Feroux, Art Critic & Historian

“These paintings are disturbingly beautiful.  I can see at least three masterpieces hanging on these walls!..."- Peter Klasen  -artist, Paris, France

"Jeffrey Vincent Parise's paintings touch the viewer through a combination of quiet intensity and simplicity, but more importantly through his obvious enthusiasm for his subject matter and his craft". - Steven R. Gilmore -artist, Los Angeles

Seth Walker
"...I would have broken my wingspan to hold that pose 
You paint the way Native Americans fought for family 
Before they were white washed... 

...I breathed deeply in meditation 
Stared off into the land where Buddha still lectures
Listened to the unfolding parable of beauty makers
Realizing walls of potentiality 
Everything is as beautiful as anything can be here and now
Jeffrey Vincent Parise,
You make them see it...

...Bury your best portraits in the desert sand 
So that one day historians can discover them
You will be the Monet of the next millennium 
Don’t worry about the sirens singing economic destruction
When from a messenger
Stories outlive men"

--Seth Walker, Poet (from the book)
