Allan D. Hasty & Parker Wolf – Hostage

“Hostage”, an outing of the collaborative work of Allan D. Hasty and Parker Wolf is currently riding the walls at The Proposition.

The theme of these canvases is constraint. Animal, vegetable and mineral are treated in a similar manner to varying effect. The “rope” that holds the subjects presents itself as manipulator and in some cases, savior. A restricted set of mouths may lend themselves to freedom of speech issues whereas a bound Marilyn Monroe stirs up thoughts of a different sort entirely.

Two days before the opening, visitors were treated to a tree tying performance by The Walking Man Army. The crew, founded by Parker Wolf, wears all white with black goggles and “exists only to create visual spectacles in real time/space.”
