Jada + David Parrish are mixed media artists whose work explores the connection between painting, sculpture, motion, and photography. They use plywood and paint to construct sets that manipulate perspective and create optical illusions.
It's all a dream
This shoot was to create a dynamic piece of cover art. We designed a set using plywood and latex paint to mimic to create a stage using a 70s color palette. The concept was that she was performing in one of her own daydreams.
We designed a diner set using plywood and latex paint. We flipped the diner set upside down to create a very surreal world.
We built a set using plywood and latex paint to create an interesting piece of cover art. The set was designed to look like a space stairway to nowhere.
We designed this shoot to be a dynamic piece of cover art with a strong focus on sense of self. The artist painted a self-portrait. We then designed the set to identically replicate the painting and hung the painting in the corner of the room. This photo is about the self inside the self.
We built a set using plywood and latex paint to create a sun ray effect. This shoot was about portraying the artists energy and electricity.
