Artwork description

Parker is known for her practice of destroying objects only to recreate the remnants, changing both their appearance and contextual meaning. In this work the artist continues to transform an everyday object (or in this case, a casual spillage) into an arresting image reminiscent of an explosion. This new print, made especially for the 'Only Connect' exhibition, forms part of an on-going series of photographs of accidental spills, shot in locations of geopolitical unrest. Other locations in the series include Jerusalem.

In Parker’s words; 'This image of spilt coffee was captured at Brussels Central Railway Station in 2017, but not before it registered the tracks of a passing suitcase.'

Artist Sales: this work is sold by the artist. The sale is facilitated by RA Enterprises (RAE) for which RAE receives a commission from the artist only.

As is customary in the selling of limited edition prints, please note that the price of this work will rise as the edition sells.
