Sugar Mountain

Site specific and utilizing little wall space Parker chooses to integrate the structure of the light filled space in her suite of photographs.  These images are reflections upon interior spaces predominantly museum spaces with a view to the outside in an endeavor to create an atmosphere rather than represent a place.  Parker is interested in the ways we experience interior spaces, both public and private, with a focus on the way light travels into the deepest interiors of shelters, scrutinizing spaces illuminated by natural light sources from doorways, windows and other architectural openings.  While the works are predominantly photographs of foreign environments,  Parker is not interested so much in the identity of the location, rather she is interested in counter offering a view where architectural and subjective details coalesce where a mood or sensation is conveyed distinctly from archetypes of context.
