John Parker’s illustrious career as a ceramist is celebrated with the release of John Parker: Cause and Effect to accompany a comprehensive solo exhibition at Te Uru Waitakere Contemporary Gallery in Titirangi. The beautifully produced publication examines in depth what has inspired and shaped Parker’s oustanding practice over the past fifty years.
Essays by Douglas Lloyd Jenkins, Andrew Clifford, and Grace Cochrane are accompanied by a wealth of full-colour photographs, which reveal the subtle complexities of Parker’s work. John Parker: Cause and Effect is a must-have for anyone who has ever wondered what drives an artist to create and is essential reading for those interested in the development of ceramics in New Zealand.
