Cornelia Parker, one of Britain’s most acclaimed contemporary artists, will unveil a major new body of prints at Cristea Roberts Gallery.
Cornelia Parker, who transforms the ordinary into the extraordinary, uses printmaking to produce something elusive and ephemeral. Director Alan Cristea comments; “Parker’s new body of work, on which she has been working through the pandemic, is aptly called Through a Glass Darkly, the words of St Paul which suggest an obscure vision of reality. What we can’t see clearly now will eventually become evident and the artist has indeed presented us with a world of domestic objects and flora in the first stages of emergence from a ghostly past. She has breathed life into dead flowers and animated glassware as they struggle to shed their shadows.” Over 25 new works will appear for the first time in Through a Glass Darkly. The subject matter of these new works includes salt cellars; sugar bowls; medicine bottles; carafes; glassware; thistles, gerbera with decapitated heads and crushed forget-me-nots.
