When the smoke clears pays homage to a pair of motifs all but synonymous with Parra’s influential practice – a muted blue-red-black palette, and a nonchalant female figure. Calling to mind a cinematic poolside holiday, Parra dwells on a moment of stillness which, his choice of title suggests, follows one of chaos. Graphic black outlines align the print closely with the artist’s coveted designs for apparel.
“There is sadness and hope within the print, which is up for the viewer to interpret.” - Parra
