Parra – “Tracy Had A Hard Sunday” Exhibition at Jonathan LeVine Gallery

Parra, al secolo Piet Janssen, ha finalmente tolto il sipario su “Tracy Had A Hard Sunday”, la sua ultima mostra allestita in uno degli spazi della prestigiosa Jonathan LeVine Gallery di New York City.
L’artista olandese ha presentato un bello spettacolo incentrando tutte le sue nuove produzioni sui canonici colori ed emblemi della bandiera USA, spazio quindi al rosso, al blu ed alle immancabili stelle, il tutto rivisto attraverso illustrazioni, sketch e le immancabili sculture in ceramica pregiata.
I lavoro sono belli pregni dello stile che contraddistingue l’artista, i birdman ancora padroni della scena con situazioni al limite del ridicolo e con toni molto sexy, in puro stile Parra.
Le sculture che vedete sono prodotte insieme alla casa belga CASE STUDYO e sono già uscite in versione bianca e nera, puntualmente sold-out, quindi aspettiamo l’uscita dell’ultima, immaginiamo super limitata, versione in rosso vivo vista in mostra della quale vi daremo info non appena disponbili.
Se vi trovate nella grande mela lo show rimarrà aperto fino al 23 Marzo, intanto date un’occhiata alle immagini dell’ampio recap e restate sintonizzati per nuovi aggiornamenti.

Jonathan LeVine Gallery is pleased to present Tracy Had a Hard Sunday, a series of new works by Amsterdam-based, Dutch artist Parra, in what will be his first solo exhibition at the gallery.

Parra creates witty and often provocative post-Pop imagery in a vibrant palette of highly saturated colors. His distinctive hybrid figures have bird-like features such as elongated, beak-shaped noses. The curvaceous nudes are portrayed in a variety of suggestive circumstances, at times salacious and at times comical; occasionally accented by the artist’s stylized, hand-drawn typography.

Parra’s multi-disciplinary work spans cohesively across drawing, painting, animation and sculpture. Tracy Had a Hard Sunday includes works on canvas, paper and ceramic. The canvases, painted in shades of reds and blues feature a recurring motif of stars and stripes. The sculptures in the exhibition represent the artist’s skill in translating his subjects into three-dimensional form, while studies for the paintings—created in ink on paper—reinforce the graphic quality of his compositions in black and white simplicity.

Parra’s sensibility is largely rooted in Pop art and the experimental graphics of the 1960s. His bold and playful imagery references the work of such artists as Keith Haring and Victor Moscoso, celebrated designer of psychedelic rock posters for San Francisco’s Fillmore Auditorium. In 2012, Parra was commissioned by the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMoMA) to create Weirded Out, a 60-foot indoor mural, currently part of their permanent collection.
