Group Exhibition October 20, 2012 – December 31, 2012
“Salvation” is a culmination of months of hard work by Parlor Gallery co-owner, Jill Ricci, and Parlor represented artist, Porkchop.
Both artists have used their signature time-weathered layering styles to transport the viewer into their world. Jill has created a large body of new collages, showcasing texture through found papers, metallic finishes, bright paint, hand cut stencils and text in a way that feels as if the pieces were torn from old city walls. Porkchop’s new body of work is inspired by iconography found through out different world religions. Portraits of beautiful women and skulls in Porkchops’s usual style are layered with ancient symbols. Porkchop has also created several mixed media installations for this show including a gold-leafed human skeleton in it’s own diorama box.
