The sculptures of Doubleparlour are friendly, robust and full of soft, childlike curves. Yet some have a more serious contemplative side to them – adding interest and inspiring thought. Extra tiny details reveal even more upon closer inspection – humor, wit or twists of reality. Babies hang in blob-like cocoons, Alien-like creatures and little girls complete with wrinkles and striped knee socks – these are all within the radar of their Trinity solo exhibition.
Doubleparlour is a local husband and wife artist team comprised of Ernie and Cassandra Velasco. These sculptures are wonderfully disarming and really need to be seen in person – this new exhibit at Modern Eden is just the place to do it. Extremely reasonably priced, their new works are sure to be sold out soon, if they aren’t already. For an online look at all the works, click here.
TRINITY IS A COLLECTION EXPLORING THE ARCHETYPE OF THE TRIPLE DEITY. A TRIPLE DEITY IS THREE SEPARATE BEINGS SHARING A COMMON BOND OR ONE DEITY WITH THREE ASPECTS. THIS BODY OF WORK EXAMINES THE DYNAMICS OF INTERWOVEN RELATIONSHIPS AND PHYSICAL PARTS TO EXPLORE THE TIES THAT BIND. THESE THREADS CONNECTING EXISTENCE BETWEEN LIVING CREATURES CAN BOTH UNITE AND DIVIDE. – Via Modern Eden
