An exhibition by sculptor Jean Parker

A body of work that was made as a reflection upon a period of illness and medical treatments without being overtly literal or mawkish. The choices she has made in creating this work underline her integrity as a sculptor and the importance of this in her life.

The major part of the exhibition is made up of a group of large alabaster heads. '

'The boldness of strength, with which these larger pieces have been carved, relates back to some of the earlier work of Jacob Epstein. The blank, white face has similarities to the work of the contemporary British sculptor Stephen Cox who was greatly inspired by Indian sculpture.'
