DESCRIPTION

Paul Kasmin Gallery is pleaaositions, the leaves and vines cast unrealistic shadows onto the sea and sky behind them. Following the logic of cartoons and dreams, these jungle scenes and still-life paintings feel seductive and eerie; visually sensible but also askew.

Erik Parker was included in the first “Greater New York” exhibition at MoMA PS1 in 2000, and has had recent solo exhibitions at Cornerhouse in Manchester, England; de Appel arts centre in Amsterdam, the Netherlands; the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, Texas; Colette in Paris, France; Honor Fraser in Los Angeles, California; and Galleri Faurschou in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Parker has a solo exhibition at The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum in Ridgefield, CT, opening on July 15, 2012, and remaining on view until February 24, 2013. The exhibition is accompanied by a first major monograph spanning most of Parker’s artistic career, titled “Erik Parker: Colorful Resistance,” to be published by Skira Rizzoli on July 31, 2012.
