Description

A retrospective exhibition of work produced over the last ten years of daily painting by Brian Parker.

As a scientist and holder of a PhD in Engineering Parker's working life has been focused on scientific and numerical detail, as is clear in many of his paintings. A chance working encounter with the legendary David Hockney was to act as a catalyst, influencing his desire to finally step out of what many see as the day-to-day rat race and allow him to retire and dedicate his passion to his art. Venturing far and wide, Brian turns the everyday scenes he encounters into moments that on canvas will last forever as aesthetic art.

Parker is a contemporary artist but with a traditional outlook who aims to create beautiful images using intense colour and precise proportions, constructing artworks of true aesthetic pleasure. A realistic painter with a unique vision influenced by artists from Schiele to Hockney and set apart by his desire to be appreciated first and foremost for his personal vision of form and subject matter, whether that might be his clothes closet or the London tube.

Creating a new style based around intense colour and exacting precision, Parker's work is of a kind that few can emulate but many can now aim to collect…
