Three of what we consider to be some of our favorite contemporary painters are all showing together at Marlborough Chelsea Gallery in New York City starting February 22, 2014. "FAR OUT!" will include Erik Parker, Peter Saul, and Jamian Juliano-Villani, all who paint with a touch of psychedelic influence, pop-culture references, and classic inspirations. And the work gets bright!
Saul’s color-drenched grotesques emerged out of the same heady stew that produced the underground comix revolution, and this imagery and inclination has metastasized in the work of Parker, his former student. Parker’s influence, in turn, has been refracted in his former studio assistant Juliano-Villani continuing what now amounts to a burgeoning mini-tradition in style, mood and provocative subject matter.
