José Parlá: Phosphene, in London.-

October 11 – November 16, 2023

“My intention in this work is to invite a meditation and a question – what do we see and what do we imagine when we close our eyes? What does it transcend us to? Where does it take us to?”José Parlá

“Ben Brown Fine Arts is proud to present Phosphene, an exhibition of new works by New York-based Cuban artist José Parlá at the flagship London gallery from 11 October to 16 November 2023, coinciding with Frieze London. This will be the artist’s second solo exhibition in the Mayfair space, following his highly acclaimed Echo of Impressions show in 2018. Phosphene forms the second part of a comprehensive exhibition that was preceded by earlier paintings from this series at our Hong Kong gallery in March 2023.

The significance of these works lies, in part, from their inspiration following the artist’s near-death experience with Covid (2021) and unveils an exhilarating and poignant exhibition drawing on recurring themes in his practice, including urban space, human markings, memory and energy.”
