It is with deep sadness that we acknowledge the death of painter J S Parker.
A regular exhibitor since the late 1960s and awarded the Frances Hodgkins Fellowship at the University of Otago in 1975, John’s paintings are lyrical hymns to the land and we are keenly aware of his presence in each considered stroke of the palette knife on canvas.
We extend our heartfelt sympathies to John’s whānau, his person and his vision will be greatly missed.
Haere rā i a koe ka kōpikopiko atu ki Te Hono-i-wairua, ki te kāpunipunitanga o te wairua.
