Ed Paschke is world renowned as a painter of outstanding wit and
impact. His exploration of the social, cultural and political dimensions
of identity challenge traditional standards of beauty and collapse
established hierarchies of taste and value.
Much like the layered, multi-faceted readings of his work, Paschke also
skillfully translated his ideas across two and three dimensions in a
variety of media.
Traversing the full arc of his forty-year career, Ed Paschke: Mixed
Media features drawings, paintings, sculptures and prints—including
lithographs and silkscreens pulled at over half a dozen workshops
Selected by Paschke’s daughter Sharon and drawn exclusively from her
private collection, EPAC’s permanent display of Paschke’s
PHSColograms, public art commission, and studio contextualize his
creative methods and working process.
Immensely creative and productive, this exhibition is the first to trace
Paschke’s ability to isolate, frame and refine what inspired him over
time and across materials.
