|Description||Segmented Realities is a group of five paintings and ten sculptural paintings by Jose Parla that suggest cultural fragments salvaged from urban sites that have experienced social and cultural upheaval and transformation. As do segments of walls in Havana, New York, London, or the Berlin wall, Parla's sculptures bear witness to waves of history that seem to be inscribed on their surfaces, told in an expressive and poetic language of the city. These works act as palimpsests, surfaces bearing layers of marks, on which ensuing generations might imagine their own manifestos and declarations of selfhood.|
|Author Biography||Jose Parla (born 1973) has received critical acclaim for his works, which lie at the boundary between abstraction and calligraphy. Composed from layers of paint, gestural drawing and found ephemera, his work evokes the histories of urban environments. Parla is a documentarian of city life. In Medias Res, Parla's second solo exhibition with Bryce Wolkowitz Gallery in New York City opened in Chelsea in 2014. In 2012, the 11th Havana Biennial selected The Wrinkles of the City: Havana, Cuba project, a vertically integrated collaboration between Parla and French artist JR, and exhibited in 2013 at Bryce Wolkowitz Gallery. Parla and JR co-directed a documentary by the same title that was awarded the Grand Prize for Documentary Short and Best U.S. Premiere Documentary Short in 2013 at The Heartland Film Festival, Indianapolis. In 2014, Parla was commissioned to create a 90-foot-long mural painting for the entrance of One World Trade Center, which he has entitled: ONE: Union of the Senses.|
