Olivia Parker

Olivia Parker (b.1941) ‘New ideas form; the old are shattered, and sometimes old ideas pop up again among the new like graffiti on a wall.  All is uncertainty and change, but optimists and bingo players are on the lookout for moments of perfect knowledge and perfect cards.’  (from my introduction to Weighing The Planets, 1987) In 2019 there was a major retrospective of my work at the Peabody Essex Museum, curated by Sarah Kennel and accompanied by a book, Order of Imagination.
