They’re eloquent folks at PTP, so I’ll let the PR speak for itself:
Maui artist and printmaker Paul Mullowney [has been] in residence at the Paia Tattoo Parlor Gallery from July 24 to August 21, during which time he [has] creat[ed] a new body of work in a variety of media including woodcut, etching, photography, and installation.
Inspired by traditional tattoo parlors where tattoo artists work and mingle with the public in an atmosphere of creative frenetic energy in private and semi-private cubicles, the exhibition [has] function[ed] as a living performance and installation where Mullowney’s private studio [has been] relocated to the Paia Tattoo Parlor Gallery.
All the ephemera associated with the working studio will be set up for the exhibition creating a constantly changing art experience where the viewing public [has had] a chance to see the progression of the art-making process.
