Paintings And Works On PaperApril 12 - May 3
Greg Parker. Untitled, 2006. Oil, pigment, and graphite on gesso panel, 60" x 96" x 3".
|The works in this exhibition have been selected to show the chronological
development of Parker's creative verb over the last decade or so. The show
illustrates how the present work has been informed by the past—the development
of content, the evolution of materials and techniques, and the intangible
reasons that are at the heart of any artist's growth. Parker's juxtaposition of
materials with an in-tune aesthetic sensibility serves to provide the viewer
with masterful manipulations of his pallet and formal structures.
The selection of work also underscores a certain continuity of purpose that is a product of the places and events of Parker's life, as well as the formal exploration of geometry, color, and mathematical systems.
Parker has exhibited widely and his work is represented in New York City at Jim Kemper Fine Art.
This exhibition is curated by Krisjohn Horvat, Rhode Island College Department of Art.
Reception: April 12, 6:00–8:00 p.m. with a lecture by the artist at 7:15 p.m.
