Parra’s “Tracy Had a Hard Sunday” Exhibit in NYC

Born Piet Janssen, Dutch artist Parra brought his brand of post-Pop surrealism to Jonathan LeVine Gallery in New York City this past weekend. “Tracy Had a Hard Sunday” presents a series of highly saturated canvases, along with black and white pieces, and ceramic sculptures. Done in conjunction with Belgian art publisher Case Studyo, the sculptures feature Parra’s trademark bird look, posed like warped Egyptian cat statues. The basic color palate themed work is his first solo display at the space. Says Jonathan LeVine 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.”

The NYC exhibition runs from Feb. 23 through Mar. 23. You can see more from Parra’s “Tracy Had a Hard Sunday” at Highsnobiety and Jonathan LeVine Gallery.
