This new group exhibition at Parlor Gallery will feature a number of artists who have previously exhibited with the gallery, alongside a range of newcomers showcasing their text based artworks. Spell Check will include a range of artists who work in different mediums, from street art to sign painters, whose work is strongly linked with text and typography within their artworks.

Spell Check Text & Typography

The Spell Check group exhibition at Parlor Gallery explores the world of words with a group of artists using text and typography within their artworks. Words form an important part in our understanding of the world around us, it is part of our human nature to try and interpret the written word whether or not we understand the meaning of the words or the language they are presented in. Words affect us in many ways, touching our psyche depending on how and where those texts are presented to us; this can also alter the meaning of those same words. The group exhibition at Parlor Gallery takes text as a starting point and presents the results in a variety of styles, from the artistic visions of Max Rippon and Nora Sands to the graphic styling of Keith Scharwath and Brooke Holloway, through to the appropriated images of Mark Goede with added text. If you have a liking for all things text based take a look at the work of Daniele Tozzi, aka Pepsy, in Word Play and the work of Ben Eine in his Heartfelt exhibition.

Within the Spell Check group exhibition at Parlor Gallery, the viewer will find an amazing array of artworks exploring themes of text, typography and calligraphy. The nineteen artists exhibiting all have their own distinct styles within the area of text based works including the fascinating work of Barcelona based artist Max Rippon, who has gained much acclaim for his often stunning studio and mural works that play on the use of words, more of which you can explore in the Extracts With No Romance article. Pablo Power will exhibit some of his beautifully textured and layered images that concern themselves with the idea of patterns and history, wonderful examples of his work can be viewed in the A Circle Unbroken at No Romance article on his recent solo exhibition. The lost objects of Hyland Mather, aka X-O, take text into a different direction, with geometric assemblages that are usually formed from found objects, more of which can be seen in Balancing Act, a joint exhibition with Amanda Marie.
