'tasting'
6 x 7.5 inches
collage on paper


in his first solo exhibition 'between currencies', american artist erik parra examines 
the tension between the meticulously cut and the shredded with his juxtaposition of 
vintage pop media clippings and multicolored paper cutouts. the tangled layers 
of artificiality eminent in both the medium and the message- between black and 
white and RGB, history and desire, question the relevance of a search for american 
authenticity.
