Cory ?Brendan? Parker, Untitled 2, Mixed Media & Acrylic on Canvas

Chelsea’s Agora Gallery will feature Florida artist, Cory ‘Brendan’ Parker, in the Apex of Transcendence. The exhibition is scheduled to run from November 23, 2010 through December 14, 2010 (opening reception: Thursday, December 02, 2010).

Combining mixed media with acrylics, Cory ‘Brendan’ Parker’s highly textured abstractions and landscapes rise tantalizingly from the canvas, playfully interacting with light and shadow. In a technique he calls “experimental Impasto acrylic alchemy” Parker uses the physical depth of his mediums to create the composition itself, the gnarled and twisting branches of trees emerging from the canvas, waves rolling out and crashing upon the wall. The textures give his abstract works a feeling of movement and solidity. Against the roughness of their foundations Parker works fluidly in acrylics, his glossy colors gleaming vibrantly. The dimensional qualities of Parker’s work mean the paintings are especially striking when viewed in person.

Passionate about music, the self-taught artist began painting when an accident to his hand enforced a break in his musical experimentation. Parker sees his art as an expression of his soul and feels it is his duty to use his creative gifts to their fullest potential. As his own spiritual journey continues to evolve so too will his artwork.

Exhibition Dates: November 23, 2010 – December 14, 2010
Reception: Thursday, December 02, 2010, 6:00 - 8:00 p.m.
Gallery Location: 530 West 25th St, New York City
