Doubleparlour, the husband-and-wife duo of Ernie and Cassandra Velasco, produce surreal figurative sculptures that are both fanciful and slightly menacing. The pair, living in San Francisco, move between complex scenes in resin or simpler, yet striking, single figures. Doubleparlour was featured in Hi-Fructose Vol. 22, and last appeared on HiFructose.com here.
Individually, each member of Doubleparlour brings a varying background and output. Yet, the moniker is synonymous with melancholic, absorbing pieces. “Doubleparlour’s work includes solo and collaborative pieces in a variety of mediums and materials,” a statement says. “They strive to produce well-crafted artwork with an emphasis on peculiar, humorous, and melancholy characters.”
