Vicken Parsons - On Reflection
'On Reflection' shows the most recent work by British artist Vicken Parsons, best known for her small-scale paintings of architectural spaces and landscapes. "Vicken Parsons’ paintings are visual poems", states Rachel Spence in the introduction to the catalogue published on the occasion of the exhibition at Ivorypress in Madrid. "Delicate, diminutive, measured, rhythmically playful but strict on internal structure. Withholding clarity to open the way towards a more enduring light. Our gaze narrows to look at them just as our ear quickens to catch poetry’s music. We peer. Lean closer. Pause. Painting as comma of time as well as occupier of space."
