WHERE: Ro2 Art at 1501 S Ervay St, The Cedars, Dallas 75215
WHEN: February 11 – March 11, 2017
OPENING RECEPTION: Saturday, February 11, from 7-10 pm

Ro2 Art is excited to present Jeff Parrott’s solo exhibition Psyexpression Manifesto, the artist’s incarnation of the idea that “our minds [create] raw reality in data imagery sound and thought. Recording the data is the human code of reality. By expression of painting one’s mind through MANIFESTING, one's Imp/Expressionism's create reality into a new paradigm of dimension and awareness.”

The often uncanny, capricious, mercurial entities and otherworldly creatures “stuck in a place in space, stuck in a state of frenzy” themes in Jeff Parrott's works have in common the artist’s fascination with anything created, whether animate or inanimate. Parrott is known for his bright colors, strange psychedelic images, psyche, painting the totality of the human mind, conscious and unconscious.


Born and raised in Dallas, Texas, Jeff Parrott discovered his interest in art during college, defining a style for his art which included creatures portrayed in distorted, psychedelic forms. He implemented bright colors into the mélange of images that flowed from his inner thoughts, splayed out onto the canvas. Jeff received his BFA in Painting and Drawing from Texas A&M Commerce, where he participated in numerous exhibitions. Jeff later received his MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago before returning to Texas.

Jeff Parrott has remained dedicated to his studio practice, having had solo exhibitions with Ro2 Art and last year at The MAC, as well as participating in important exhibitions at institutions includeing El Centro College and The McKinney Avenue Contemporary. He has also been featured at the Dallas Art Fair with Ro2 Art. Parrott is a third time finalist for the Hunting Art Prize, and has been published twice in the prestigious quarterly publication, New American Paintings.
