I have run across Adam Parker Smith’s work repeatedly over the past couple of years, though due to its varied nature, it was only recently that I realized all these works were his. Whether at a No Longer Empty installation up in the Bronx, or at art fairs such as  Pulse here in Manhattan, Adam Parker Smith’s work is very much in the public eye. And it should be. It’s full of humor mixed with cultural critique, verging on the conceptual while employing techniques that include painting, sculpture, collage, video and more. Parker Smith’s work is the equivalent to that person who’s the life of the party. Fun and engaging, with sharp wit, sometimes ironic, sometimes a little crass, but always clever and surprising. Who wouldn’t want that in their show?
