Vicken Parsons: Far
Vicken Parsons is a British artist who was born in 1957 and studied at the Slade School of Fine Art. She is best-known for her small scale paintings that evoke architectural space and elemental landscape. Within a careful confusion of planes, lines and marks, Parsons' paintings engage the eye of the viewer in continuous movement between an illusory deep space and the picture plane.
Vicken Parsons has had solo exhibitions at Tate St Ives, Kettle's Yard (Cambridge), Christine König Galerie (Vienna), Alan Cristea Gallery (London), New Art Centre (Salisbury) and Kristof De Clercq gallery. She has taken part in group exhibitions at Whitechapel Gallery (London), Tate Modern (London), Tate Britain (London), the Royal Academy of Arts (London), the Institute of Contemporary Art (London), Southampton City Art Gallery, Kunsthalle Mannheim, Turner Contemporary (Margate), The Foundling Museum (London) and The Belvedere (Vienna).
Vicken Parsons' work is included in a number of important public collections including Tate, The Belvedere (Vienna), the Arts Council Collection, the Jerwood Foundation, National Galleries Scotland, and was most recently acquired by the Government Art Collection. Vicken Parsons lives and works in London.
