With a mastery of color and layering at it’s core, Erik Parker’s work assaults the senses in a deeply visceral way. Blending rawness with whimsy, the New York-based artist brought his newest body of psychedelia to colette in Paris a couple weeks back. Playing the part of stylistic chameleon, much like his last solo, Endless Anytime (covered), sidetracked from his signature amorphous figuration to focus on more classical still life compositions, Re-Upped sees the artist take yet another new direction with a series of acrylic and ink works on paper that playfully blend intricate doodles, in almost animation-like progression, with typographic overtures. A selection of works that more closely reflect his conventional 60’s inspired abstract and fluid renderings rounded out the show.
