Rory Parks was born in 1982 in Greenfield, MA. He received his BA from Hampshire College in 2005. He reworked one component of his thesis project into a video installation, "Lyric Screen + Lost Baseball diaries" in 2006 at Plane Space Gallery, NY. He is invested in painting as a resource for analogical and pragmatic thinking grounded by the shifting possible efficacies of time/space "locatedness" – and vice-versa. He has exhibited in Boston and New York.
