After releasing two collaborative projects last week, Parra finds himself back in the States this month for a new solo exhibition. Tracy Had a Hard Sunday, on view from February 23 through March 23, features a series of new works on canvas, paper and ceramic at the Jonathan LeVine Gallery. The canvases, painted in shades of reds and blues, feature a recurring motif of stars and stripes. The studies for the paintings, created in ink on paper, reinforce the graphic quality of his compositions in unbelievable black-and-white simplicity. And the sculptures epitomize his ability to translate subjects into three-dimensional form. If you’re in town, be sure to check out the opening reception on the 23rd from 7-9 p.m. to be among the first to see the exhibit. Jonathan LeVine Gallery is located at 529 West 20th Street in New York.
