textile artist. screen printer. lover of drawing. dreamer.

things that I make. things that inspire me. things that I see.

Last night at the end of my solo exhibition - saying farewell to my finished drawing that I made on the gallery wall during the show.

Hand drawn with markers at Canberra Contemporary Art Space, Manuka.

Still painting the wall…

Today is the last day of my solo exhibition Mostly Unobserved at Canberra Contemporary Art Space, Furneaux Street, Manuka.

Closing party from 5pm - last chance to see the wall drawing I’ve been working on before it’s lost under layers of white paint!

During my current solo exhibition Mostly Unobserved, I am making a drawing directly on the gallery wall. Here’s a little peek at how it’s progressing so far…

I’ll be drawing in the gallery Wednesday to Sunday this week, 11am to 5pm at 19 Furneaux Street Manuka - folks in Canberra - come say hello.

This Sunday afternoon at 5pm I’ll be holding a closing event - come along for a drink and see how much the drawing grew - before it’s lost forever under layers of white paint. All are welcome!

A very big thank you to all who attended the opening of my solo exhibition Mostly Unobserved at Canberra Contemporary Art Space, Manuka on Thursday evening. (And thanks to my lovely sister for saying a few words!)
And a HUGE thank you to CCAS for my amazing experience as a 2013 studio resident at Gorman House Arts Centre!

Mostly Unobserved is an exhibition of new works on paper by Jemima Parker. Her recent work explores patterns and textures found in the urban environment as a result of age and disrepair - worn surfaces such as weathered paint, aged concrete, crumbling bricks and rust.  Jemima’s intent is to transform these ordinary mundane, even dilapidated or “ugly” subjects into something extraordinary, beautiful and valuable - hoping to remind the viewer of the unobserved beauty that is present in the everyday. Over the course of the exhibition, Jemima will also be working directly onto the gallery wall. At 5pm on Sunday 13 April there will be a closing event where all are invited back to see the finished drawing on the gallery wall - before it’s lost forever under layers of white paint.
