R. Nelson Parrish

R. Nelson Parrish is a multi-disciplinary fine artist who makes sculptures in reaction to Southern California living. His tactile, dynamic pieces represent a fusion of natural and synthetic, through sculpture and painting. The main body of his work implements the language of color and the tactility of space in making the memory of moments and visceral experiences tangible. Each work investigates the expansion and contraction of time, aiming to disengage the viewer from the peripheral and focus on the present moment — eliciting a calm among the chaos that is rare in today’s world.
