"No leaping out of the void, lacking momentum and then dieing in terms of the art market.

A lot depends on cachet or branding. The terms and conditions of success can be hard to read,

from the artist's perspective." Jonathan Parker in conversation with Ron Varney



Upstairs at the Hill Street Hang:

Honour paintings which try to convey allegiance and fidelity to salt that existed

within a problematic system of Liberal Empire. They point to the Regatta figures

who step forward with prizes in a fleeting moment of celebration and also the

gentleman archetype whose motto "My word is my bond" used to hold sway in the City.

The Neptune Collection

takes its name from a statue that once stood over the walled garden of Parker's ancestral

home in Northumberland, holding the key to his exploration of time with a brush, from an

aristocratic perspective. The nature of creative force emerges as he searches for avant-garde

techniques within a tradition, drawing on the experiences of his early career in Havana, Cuba,

where he was a screen print apprentice at the end of the Cold War.
