Richard Pasquarelli at Espacio 21

Espcacio 21 is pleased to present recent works by Richard Pasquarelli. Newspaper headlines. Kidnappings. Psycho killers. The fall of the Catholic Church. Forensic TV shows. Mystery novels. Crime scene investigations. Suicides. Abandoned cars. Loneliness. Suspense thrillers. Being lost. Ghost stories. Mental hospitals. Night. Suburban blight. Secrets. Empty rooms. Sin. Creating sleek, crisp canvases based on his own mysterious and ambiguous photographs, Pasquarelli aims to entice viewers with a highly polished surface and subtle colors, then hit them with a muffled, slow moving jolt.
