JOEL PARSONS + CLARE TORINA: VELVET STERNUM
Sheet Cake Gallery / 405 Monroe Ave. January 20 - March 2nd
Joel Parsons, Clare Torina
Velvet Sternum is a new presentation of work from Joel Parsons and Clare Torina featuring drawings, enamels, paintings, and installation. Parsons’ work centers queer intimacy using dance, tears, and heartbreaking writing to draw you in and invite you to spend time with your own loving and longing. Torina’s work often uses familiar imagery but distorts them in such a way as to make them feel tantalizing and strange through a playful approach to scale and trompe l’oeil techniques. Both of these artists make work that is smart, witty, and a tad wild. Expect humor, disco, dogs, candles and surprises.
