Showing: Jose Parla – “Anonymous Vernacular” @ Bryce Wolkowitz Gallery

A couple weeks ago, Bryce Wolkowitz Gallery in New York opened up a solo show from Jose Parla entitled Anonymous Vernacular. One of the things that stands out to us about the Cuban-American artist’s work are the rich textures and complex layers he creates in each of his pieces, a collage of oil paints, graffiti inspired scrawl, acrylic finishes, and torn advertisments. Along with fourteen gritty new paintings, the Brooklyn-based artist has also included a reworked found object sculpture that speaks to the issue of homelessness. He further states – […]
