This event has ended.

Parry's powerful narrative paintings, explosive in their raw energy, shock, provoke, and entertain all at once; the use of the "Stations of the Cross" as a metaphoric stage for his bawdy and aberrant cast of characters, a gauntlet thrown down to the viewer.

THE THIRTEEN STATIONS OF THE DOUBLE-CROSS is "loosely based on the Fourteen Stations of the Cross. This version, however, features no cross, no death, no resurrection, and no savior. A rope/leash/noose replaces the cross; a paper crown replaces the crown of thorns; fingernail scratches from passionate sex replace the marks left by a cat-o-nine-tales; and so on. The central figure in these works is more holy fool than savior, yet he allows himself to endure suffering just as willingly. The lack of redemption is what makes our holy fool human." (DP '08)
