Robert Klein Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of new, personal work by longtime gallery artist, OLIVIA PARKER. Vanishing in Plain Sight is the artist's journey into Alzheimer's Disease as experienced through her late husband, John Parker, who passed away in December of 2016.
A continuing work in progress, Vanishing in Plain Sight proves to be some of the most emotionally evocative and experimental work of Parker's long career. Poignant and deeply moving, this series finds the artist exploring new grounds, including self-portraiture and dramatic grid sequences, while still retaining the vivid color and abstract liveliness that have become the signature of her still life work.
For over 45 years, OLIVIA PARKER has been producing visually playful and complex photographs through a variety of processes. From the masterful darkroom technique found in her early large format contact prints, to her pioneering adoption of Adobe Photoshop and other digital imaging tools in the early 1990s, Parker has become equally renowned for her technical proficiency as for her dynamic work.
This special exhibition will be on display from Thursday, May 4 until Saturday, June 24. Please join us for an opening reception at our 38 NEWBURY STREET GALLERY on THURSDAY, MAY 4 FROM 6 TO 8PM. The artist will be joined by SARAH KENNEL, Byrne Family Curator of Photography at the Peabody Essex Museum. Light refreshments will be served.
