My biography starts with- when I started scaffolding at the age of eighteen , looking across at London with panoramic views of up to seven hundred feet, it inspired me to paint unusual shapes and colours that are not visible at ground level.I taught myself to paint in the way that I see it, the different colours and shapes from the sky landscape buildings.After approximately five years scaffolding and painting in my spare time, I was on the verge of showing my work when unfortunately I had a house fire due to me drying some artwork in a hurry. My daughter nearly died in the fire , so the thought of painting again ended that night. Now some thirty years later I have started to paint again at the age of fifty three ,with all the memories of my personal shapes and colours compact in my mind waiting to get out.
I applied for my frist art exhibit in the London art biennale 2019 and was very pleased to be accepted
And even more for winning an award for special mention for excellence.
Critique by Timothy Warrington.
This emblematic use of stark colour and line provides tangible links to Pop Art; indeed, his utilisation of bold primary colours combined with his unique intellectual perspective creates irrevocable connections with Roy Lichtenstein. These elements also conjure images of Sonia Delaunay, Piet Mondrian and Henri Matisse who possess cognitive similarities with Parker through their individual and uninhibited artistic exploration and the loquacious aspect of the works that continues to tell its complex story to each viewer who gazes upon them.
Parker’s experimental and innovative use of paint represents his fervent freedom of expression, which is comparable with the effervescent energy seen in the oeuvres of Karel Appel and Willem de Kooning. His work also draws strong philosophical connections with Boccioni and Futurism, which demonstrates his implicit desire to communicate with the viewer through a sapient variety of visual influences. Further to this, a sense of Rayonsim is detectable in the scintillating sense of light that Parker creates with his adept execution of his brushwork, that contains visible references to Mikhail Larinov. His powerful and impactful pieces provide a myriad of academic and insightful perspectives to ponder as the viewer is enticed by their enthralling sense of individuality that emits a distinct primordial idea of the artist’s outlook.
