Erik Parker

POSTED BY ON

B. 1968, Stuttgart, DE. Lives and works in Brooklyn, NY, USA. Like a visual freestyle, Parker’s work seamlessly combines elements of contemporary culture into a narrative flow of politics, music, internet memes, hallucinatory dreams, conspiracy theories, and the hieroglyphics of various subcultures. Rebellious and youthful and packed with reference material, his works exploit today’s familiar feeling of ocular bombardment through a cacophony of visual sources including advertising and social media. In his employment of overwhelming content, Parker is able to poignantly comment on the human condition — what it means to be human specifically in this time, in this place,...

B. 1986, West Covina, CA, USA. Lives and works in Los Angeles, CA, USA. Devin Troy Strother is known for his darkly humorous alternative racial narratives in a variety of medium from cut paper to neon signage.

Born in 1986...

B. 1987 in Milwaukee, WI, USA. Lives and works in Los Angeles, CA, USA. Adam Beris has created his own unique hieroglyphic language of distilled imagery often constructed with paint straight from the tube. Routinely aligned in a grid-like fashion, his compositions of objects and heads in profile conversely embody both a strictly scientific study and a loose informal rendering. Beheaded profiles float across a gradient orange canvas next to a cactus, some glasses, and a hashtag; how each item relates to the next is left up to interpretation. Because of this, even in abstract blobs of paint, the viewer...

Austin Harris

POSTED BY ON

B. 1995 Seattle, WA, USA. – Lives and works in New York, NY, USA. Austin Harris’s humorous portrayals of hyper-masculinity are a mechanism for coping with a rural upbringing surrounded by drugs, alcohol, violence, right wing political views and misogyny. His figures are painted with a plastic, artificial surface that represents both skin and rubber, something that can be molded and manipulated. The hard edges and sharp environment represent the dangerous world that men have created. Something that isconstantly pressuring individuals’ subjectivity. Born and raised outside of Seattle, Washington, Austin Harris received his BFA in Studio Art from Central Washington...
