Parrasch Heijnen debuts “Edge Events,” the gallery’s first exhibition with New York-based artist Emma Soucek (b. 1996, Long Beach, CA). The exhibition can be viewed by scheduling a timed visit. See below for info.

EMMA SOUCEK, Sarah, you’re the poet in my heart, 2021, paper pulp, collage, acrylic paint, glue, 43 x 54 inches

The textural interplay of Emma Soucek’s painting comes in the form of pinched, spread, and pleated pigmented paper pulp. Soucek’s process involves taking something which is fully formed – in this case, construction paper and other commercial stationery – and deconstructing it to a raw matter before re-visualizing it in revived manifestations that adhere to the canvas as they cure. In each painting the artist engages chance, combining remnants of personal moments and memories to create a world of her own where positive chromatic energy and expression is circumambient. The malleable nature of Soucek’s medium allows for intuition and improvisation to take hold.

Concurrently on view in the front gallery are works by the iconic New York-based artist Howardena Pindell (b. 1943, Philadelphia, PA). Cut paper collages and stencil-and-spray paint works depict Pindell’s intimate, invented universe. As the artist deconstructs the paper medium, she reinvigorates the material, establishing new bonds and combining elements freely and intuitively.
