DESCRIPTION

myplasticheart is proud to present Parlor Tricks, an exhibition featuring new works by San Francisco duo doubleparlour. Specializing in handcrafted resin sculptures, they will be introducing a cast of new and mysterious characters highlighting their propensity for the odd and fantastical.

“The theme is inspired by magic and the art of deception. There are magicians who carefully guard their secrets. The smiling assistants hold their breath as danger gliders past so close. Carnival performers display feats that amaze and baffle the crowds.” -doubleparlour

About doubleparlour
Founded in November 2007, doubleparlour is Ernie and Cassandra Velasco. They are a husband and wife artistic collaboration living in San Francisco, CA. Cassandra has a B.A. in Fine Art from Humboldt State University and Ernie is a self taught artist.

doubleparlour produces work in a variety of mediums; however, their primary focus is on making hand­formed sculptures and embellished cast resin figures. The work includes a broad range of characters including animal hybrids, mutated humans, and anthropomorphic figures. Their work has been described as “unsettling,” “cute yet creepy,” and “disillusioned children.”

Please join us for the opening reception on Saturday September 12th 2015 7-10pm. Both artists will be in attendance. Exhibition runs through October 8th 2015.
