Olivia Parker - Vanishing in Plain Sight
May 04, 2017 — Jun 24, 2017
Opening Reception: 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.
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.
