los angeles: character gestures

new york-based josé parlá heads for sunny california to present his new solo exhibition character gestures at o.h.w.o.w. gallery. opening fri - sep 9 [6pm-9pm], the show features a series of paintings, mono-transfers and installations and builds on the artist's earlier work that dealt with the concept of psychogeography and depicted distressed architectural surfaces layered with calligraphic text. and while parlá continues to elaborate on his fascination of how we experience urban landscapes and the visual language of mark making, the shift within the current show stems from a deeper engagement with process and abstraction. location: 937 north la cienega boulevard [west hollywood park].
