The Place Where We Dwell cover artist José Parlá recently published a new book featuring some of his newest paintings: José Parlá: In Medias Res
In his new book, Parlá continues to push the boundaries of representing urban life and culture by using calligraphy, watercolor, paint, photography, found objects, and sculpture. As he continues to travel widely, especially to Puerto Rico and Cuba, his methods for recording the urban fabric have evolved in very interesting and compelling ways. Viewers can glimpse the ways that the layers of his art have much to do with the layers of real life.
