TPP Presents: Roberto Marquez and Janelle Wisehart's: Works on Paper/Stories on Paper

This month TPP is proud to present the dual exhibition: "Works on Paper/Stories on Paper" of local artist Roberto Marquez and american artist Janelle Wisehart. The exhibition will consits of around 20 drawings on paper in different sizes.

Marquez and Wisehart are both persuing their MFA at Univesity of South Florida where they met and became friends after seeing each others works which are much alike in the language but it's really amazing that tow complete stranges were studying in the same class, same school and have similar ways of thinking and expresing their thoughts in their work

I've known and worked with Roberto for a couple of years and have seen his work evolve and develop troughout the years. Janelle I met about 4 years ago when she appeared in the curated magazine New American Paintings where I saw her work and purchased one. I belive her work has become mature, sarcastic, and with her sense of satire which has always been present.

The exhibition are an inner look into the world of these great young artist and the stories each of their characters has to tell. We are basically in the outside looking into the their world and situations without them knowing we are watching.

Using humor as the main and most important part of the work, we can see the different themes they present: rebellion, sexuality, fetishes, political, sical networks, religion, art history. Theses drawings are part of an exploration of the human behavior where we can easily relate to and become part of the character's world.

All works are priced under the usual $500 with most rangeing in the $100-$250 range. To see all available drawings that will be exhibited please visit our Facebook page Traler Park Proyects.

TPP is also exhibiting New York based artist Jason Karolak as well during this month.

We will be visiting the Escuala de Artes Plasticas on Tuesday March 12 and the University of Sagrado Corazon adn Universidad de Puerto Rico on Wednesday March 13th.

  1. Aw, this was an exceptionally good post. Taking the time and actual effort to create a really good article… but what can I say… I procrastinate a lot and never seem to get nearly anything done.
