Brian Parker’s organisation of David Hockney’s first retrospective in Bradford and their meetings during the 60’s ignited much of his art ethos inspiration and now "The Journey So Far...It's All About Me" showcases a wide selection of Parker's work, selected from the last 10 years of daily painting.
His aim is always to create beautiful images which leave the viewer with a feeling of satisfaction and pleasure by use of colour and form, bringing out the underlying patterns in his compositions.
He strips subjects down to the bare essentials to capture the beauty inherent in what could otherwise be banal, everyday images. The humdrum is elevated to the extraordinary – the extraordinary into a world in which one immediately wants to inhabit.
"I am driven by the need to appeal to the visual sense of my viewers, so the aesthetic impact it has on the viewer is more important to me than any particular theme."
