(13)

In the airy top floor of a handsome turn of the century Brownstone in Crown Heights, Brooklyn,
Park Place Gallery opens monthly for special exhibitions with guest curators. Park Place Gallery derives its name from the street it is located on, but it is also a nod to the original SoHo Park Place Gallery of the 1960’s. That creative mecca was formative in the careers of many New York greats includin

g Mark di Suvero, Sol LeWitt, Eva Hesse, Brice Marden, Carl Andre, Al Held, Philip Glass, and Joan Jonas. The mission of this Park Place Gallery is to bring forth exhibitions that expand the awareness of contemporary aesthetics through the highest quality of curation and artist talent. The artist-run project is designed to empower artists and curators to inspire the culture they exist within. Park Place Gallery introduces works of emerging artists as well as both nationally and internationally known artists. Park Place Gallery is a source for valued contemporary works of art at reasonable prices for new collectors to build their collections or established collectors adding to their collections.

The Wedding Feast 2013
mixed media 72" x 62"
https://parkplace.gallery

Park Place Gallery is pleased to present Happy Sad, a solo exhibition by Jonathan Torres. Torres is a Puerto Rican artist from San Juan who now lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. This body of paintings and drawings explores otherworldliness and his reality of living in the diaspora.
​Torres states, “Many of my paintings depict distorted faces; the figures undergo or have completed metamorphosis – they are a recognizable character, yet transformed to a new persona. With this, I reflect on my own identity as a Puerto Rican and someone who left the island, but also on living in a rough city like New York. In both places, beauty and happiness exist, but the absurdity and the anxiety are present, both personally and politically. In my works I want the viewer to be absorbed into this world intertwining anxiety and beauty.”
The Wedding Feast, inspired by writings of Karl Marx, teases and critiques the convention of marriage and the institutionalized systems that establish its definition. A common wedding portrait is portrayed monstrous, even grotesque in its depiction of the bride and groom. On further analysis this horrific scene rejoices in the beautiful splendors of paint. Working on a delicate lace surface Torres is seduced by the feminine lace as well as reminded of the formal lace in the decor of his Grandparents home. Torres wants the painting to communicate through the five senses touch, hearing. sight, smell and taste, through the pleasures and torments of his painting’s application and its associations. The cat faced groom walks with a paint immersed bride. They are joined by a meaty bouquet of flowers. A dark background absorbs and repels the couple. A priest looms centrally above as a fulcrum to the painting suspending the subject for judgement.

Park Place Gallery is pleased to present Happy Sad, a solo exhibition at Artsy by Jonathan Torres. Torres is a Puerto Rican artist from San Juan who now lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. This body of paintings and drawings explores otherworldliness and his reality of living in the diaspora.
​Torres states, “Many of my paintings depict distorted faces; the figures undergo or have completed metamorphosis – they are a recognizable character, yet transformed to a new persona. With this, I reflect on my own identity as a Puerto Rican and someone who left the island, but also on living in a rough city like New York. In both places, beauty and happiness exist, but the absurdity and the anxiety are present, both personally and politically. In my works I want the viewer to be absorbed into this world intertwining anxiety and beauty.”
Torres' depictions of bizarre paradises are created by emphasizing a materialistic ritual of paint and process. Even though depicting something recognizable, neo abstract expressionism allows for a physicality and catharsis through the process. Torres uses memories and trauma from personal experiences to comment on the collective chaotic socio-political environment.
Torres was born in San Juan, Puerto Rico in 1983, received his BFA in 2009 from the Escuela de Artes Plásticas, San Juan, and his MFA from Brooklyn College in 2012 under the mentorship of Vito Acconci. Currently Torres is a resident at Sharpe-Walentas Studio Program (NY, 2022 -23. Torres was selected for the Biennale Mercosul (Brazil 2016), won the Charles G. Shaw Award (NY, 2012) and the Arcos Dorados Award (Argentina, 2011). His work belongs to important collections such as the Museum of Fine Art, Boston and Museo Contemporáneo de Puerto Rico.

On the one year anniversary of the exhibition Vanitas, Park Place Gallery presents a conversation between artist Peter Schenck and PPG Director Michael Holden. The works in this exhibition are based on the theme of Vanitas; a symbolic work of art showing the transience of life, the futility of pleasure, and the certainty of death. Schenck and Holden discuss the theme, the works, and how the pandemic influenced this body of work. Schenck has a unique vision that is defining the contemporary aesthetic. This interview will give the listener a better understanding of the logic of the artist’s visions.

Mother Appetite is inspired by Francisco Goya’s “Saturn Devouring His Son”. This nocturnal painting depicts a mysterious woman devouring a grinning cat. Form is created through shimmering light emanating from within a deep atmospheric darkness. Levity and gravitas, sumptuous beauty and revulsion merge in a maelstrom of energy. What is real or symbolic becomes ceremonial for the act of painting

Park Place Gallery is pleased to present Julian Wong’s solo show RIVER SERIES, now exhibition on Kooness and Artsy. Wong fuses Eastern and Western sensibilities using calligraphic color infused rhythmic harmonies of light and shadow. He constructs compositions from observation and imagination with a distinctive poetic voice. His dynamic abstractions are powerful and hypnotic. Wong’s work offers a meditative landscape where river, city, and sky converge.

The drawings in Fortifications span roughly 14 years from 2001-2015 and are comprised of landscapes primarily rendered in shades of black, white and gray. The restricted palette suggests simplicity, clarity, and seamlessness, but black also generates uncertainty. It is a vehicle for polymorphism, the appearance of one thing simultaneously seeming to be many, by perceptually acting as an absence of light, graphically as shape, and volumetrically as a weighty mass and a deep void. Black also holds personal meaning. At age 11, in the Prado Museum, I decided to devote myself to painting while in the room of Francisco Goya’s Black Paintings. I remember being struck by the ferocity and imagination of those images. My use of black is an homage to this rich history of Spanish painting, from the praying saints of Zurbarán to Picasso’s mid twentieth century work. (Excerpt from the Artist Statement)
