New Awning Art
In his early San Francisco days, Parks Reece was an abstract expressionist. The original technique is still there with the addition of humorous and poignant portrayals of the natural world and a bit of satire pointed toward the art world. Collaborating with Rob Park they reproduced on Mylar the abstract expressionism backgrounds from existing paintings giving the impression of luminescent marble. They incorporated one of Parks’ metal art pieces, “Balancing Fin and Yang,” and installed it in the newly rebuilt awning in front of the Parks Reece Gallery at 119 South Main Street. The entire assemblage was then backlit thus creating a new art piece that also lights your way in to the gallery.
