Kim Connerton interviews artist Erik Parker on the occasion of his exhibition Undertow at Paul Kasmin Gallery, New York, on view through January 23, 2016.

Parker comments: "I am trying to pack as much into a painting as I can ... I am trying to make loaded paintings because we live in a loaded time... So these are multi-task paintings with constant streams of information coming in."
