Richard Hawkins moved out of Texas for art school in Los Angeles in Then, after a few years of writing experimental fiction among other illicit experimentations , he began a career in art that would contain all of American culture in its erotic death grip. The year-old provocateur might be the most devious fanboy in the art world. Mixed into the visual fray are images of young porn stars and hustlers, horror movie monsters, Greek statues, newspaper clippings of serial killers, decapitated heads, and red paint and ink splattered like blood. Sometimes I wonder what straight people make of them.

Rushed to Bellevue Hospital, he was pronounced dead at a. I was very surprised to hear that he was even out. The bike he was riding was relatively new to Parrino, a purchase made after a string of painting sales—somewhat of a rarity during his lifetime. But Parrino was un-phased by the lack of commercial interest in his work. He despised the mechanisms of the art market and sought to separate himself from its demands as much as possible. It was his friendships with European artists, starting with kindred spirit Olivier Mosset, that led him to show extensively in Europe, where his work was exponentially more warmly received than in the U. He exhibited frequently in France, but it was in Switzerland that Parrino truly found a second home. Switzerland was where Parrino was given the space to fully actualize his conceptual project.
The most renowned Chinese cosmogonic myth describes the creation of the world with the figure of Pangu, the first-born semi-divine human. Yin and Yang were reunited through him and he allowed the separation of Heaven and Earth from the egg-shaped chaos they were enveloped into. Pangu's body then became the physical world and its inhabitants. The show opens with this mythological tale to give the viewer the tools to plunge into its path, going from below upwards, following the Chinese reading sense as a leading principle. Nelson Pernisco interweaves here its way of occupying spaces —creating a rhythm that allows the comprehension of the space as much as the artworks— with an acute sense of organised chaos. The artworks resonate inside the rooms while creating a new narrative. Murals, oriental inspiration, science fiction, astronomy, politics, environmental awareness are the leit-motivs and markers of the creative process. The works are strongly immersive and evolving through the course of the show. When we finally reach to the centre of the exhibition, walking through a lunar landscape populated by strange creatures, we are filled with a strong post-apocalyptic sense.
