Part & Parcel @ THIS

Part & Parcel @ THIS

Friday night marked the the opening of Garrett Morin and Damien Correll’s show for their studio, Part & Parcel, at THIS Los Angeles.

Both displayed work leaning more towards fine art, but it’s easy to see the cross-over of their design work which is very illustrative and features much of the same influences: bold, geometric shapes, and classic sunday cartoons. Moreover, it’s nice to see a gallery like THIS featuring work from the Brooklyn-based studio that does a great job fusing traditional graphic design with unique and note-worthy illustration and artwork. The border between “design” and “art” is always being pushed back and forth, and P&P is certainly one of those studios that represent part of the current conversation on that division (or if it even exists)— Morin and Correll have also both been featured in the ADC Young Guns awards, a good guide to the contemporary art and design scene, and their work is evocative of much of the current design zeitgeist.
