PARALLEL PARK V – EXHIBITION

Ron Bishop, Director of the Bob Rauschenberg Gallery, invited Dintenfass to showcase the series of the paintings and works on paper that were the basis for the Parallel Park installation in a solo exhibition at the gallery in January 2011.

PARALLEL PARK IV – CONSTRUCTION

Dintenfass created detailed architectural renderings to ensure that the integrity of the artwork would be protected through the fabrication process. The intricate installation process required the artwork to be deconstructed into 184 individual components, which were then reassembled on site and positioned on specially designed aluminum tubing armature to complete the final installation.

The timing of the commission was fortuitous as the series had been recently completed.
