HISTORY OF PARSE GALLERY & ARTIST SITUATION (2010 - 2013)

 

Parse Gallery & Artist Situation was founded by artists Ricardo Barba, Andrew Schrock, and Margot Walsh in the fall of 2010. 

 

Parse Gallery's Mission Statement:

The gallery functions as a creative hive focused on collaboration and growth through combined talent. Its vision is ever changing and reflective of the three brains that give themselves to its dream.

 

Artist Bios:

Ricardo Barba is a painter, sculptor, and multi-media artist from Chicago. His work addresses cultural interactions and representations of the soul. He received a B.A. from the University of Illinois in Political Science, Psychology, and Liberal Arts. Barba currently teaches art in public schools and is creator/facilitator at Parse Gallery.

 

Andrew Schrock lives atop an elevator shaft above Parse Gallery. He is ambassador of the space and a multifaceted artist, ambitiously delving into all realms of creativity. His endeavors include chopping apart freight trains, tug boats, hacking fire hydrants, exploding sculpture, decon-reconstruction, adventures into the metaphysical, and breathing all for the sake of realizing fantasy, experimental thinking, and an understanding of the multi-verse. 

 

Margot Walsh is painter and installation artist whose work focuses primarily on the cosmos and infinite possibilities. She uses the canvas as a portal to different worlds by traveling towards deep space through black-sparkle spray paint, stripes of vibrant color, and layers upon layers of thick oil paint. She received her B.F.A. in Painting and Printmaking in 2009 from Virginia Commonwealth University and has since ventured to the South to help curate shows for Parse Gallery.
