Excited to be in this upcoming exhibition in Brooklyn!
June 14th - June 25th, 2017
Opening Reception: June 17th, 6-9 PM
PARADICE PALASE is pleased to present their inaugural show Paradise Express - a fusion of utopian tropics, the “urban jungle” and the wild, untamed outcomes they relate to or result from. Each artist builds their practice while informed in some way by tropical and indigenous flora and fauna. Symbols of leisure and reminders of oasis, plants backdrop our lives from brand logos to crayon names to dinnerware prints. Florals, house plants, lush tropics, scenic nature--all have long been associated with the feminine. In this six person show, the contemporary female perspective is explored by transforming these tropes into varying political landscapes on such subjects as gender, escapism, geo-political borders, and habitats of oppression. Flora can be a reminder of the oasis that awaits, or be warped into a grotesquely faux reality.
