In No Direction Home Alice Parker reflects on a continuous and meticulous refinement of a vocabulary of colour and its relationship to space and object. This work explores how subverting the plane of a geometric form through the use of colour, surface and light informs the public space.
Big Wigs is a series of portraits utilising images from the public domain representing individuals who are presently influential in the Australian Contemporary art scene.Through the political and economic connotations in Big Wigs, the artist aims to challenge commercialization and highlight the difficulties facing art in a consumer society where changes in the art world are dependent upon the social elites, politicians and urban planners.
