José Parlá Translate Memories into Landscapes with New Series, Phosphene

Katy Donoghue for Whitewall

José Parlá’s “Phosphene” is currently on view at  Ben Brown Fine Arts in Hong Kong through April 29. The exhibition of new paintings and works on paper are part of the titular new series for the Brooklyn-based artist . They are a result of time spent in his hometown of Miami for a period of recovery following his medically-induced coma as a result of contracting COVID-19 in 2021. That near-death experience has had a profound impact on the artist and his practice.
