Hang Outs... San Fran

Doubleparlour Solo Exhibition

Opening this Saturday Nov. 17th:

Modern Eden Gallery is excited to announce “Trinity”, a solo exhibition by the dynamic sculpting duo, Doubleparlour.  Founded in November 2007, Doubleparlour is Ernie and Cassandra Velasco. They are a husband and wife artistic collaboration living in San Francisco, CA.

"Trinity" is a collection of all new work by Doubleparlour 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.

Doubleparlour produces work in a variety of mediums; however, their primary focus is on making hand-formed resin sculptures. They strive to produce artwork with an emphasis on peculiar, humorous and melancholy characters. This character driven approach to sculpting results in figures that seem to pondering their past and present situation with a sort of disenchantment. The narrative however is left up to the viewer. At times the work references deeper underlying themes of human existence such as social alienation, purpose, and one's relationship with both the natural and artificial world.
