Miami gallery space Primary Flights had a recent exhibition showcasing Kenton Parker’s work including his remake of the Taco Shop. The show lasted from October 11th until the 5th of November. If you were not able to pass by we have a run of images of the recap after the jump.
Kenton Parker is vulnerable. Kenton Parker is approachable and clever, but most importantly, Kenton Parker is human. His works (paintings, sculptures, drawings, installation, and video), conceptual in nature, are inspired by an honest response to humanity, perversion, attitude, and the intellect commonly associated with rebellion. Parker’s creative process exists on multiple plains. Hidden away in Parker’s studio, you find basic text, simple concept, amusements, sexual deviation, and human response crudely written over thousands of sheets of paper. Each concept fragile as the next, Parker cultivates these documentations into refreshing contemporary works that take cue from his daily adjustments.
“It takes all this to be me”, Parker’s first solo exhibit since 2007, is selected works from the past four years with a majority of the body inspired by his life in the past ten months. Pulling immensely from everything Los Angeles, his prolific role as the proprietor of an LA taco shop, and his ironic passage through his own personal history.
Where you find Kenton Parker, you find a well of friendly energy, misconduct, and a rich taste of artistic integrity.
