Brian Parker

I am a painter and visual artist based in Hockley, Essex. Although I trained as a scientist and hold a PhD in chemical engineering I have had an involvement in the visual arts for over 30 years.

Once I began painting I noticed that I see outlines and edges rather than volumes and that I have a very strong sense of pattern.

My personal style of looking and depicting is evolving to incorporate these influences, together with a powerful sense of colour and a strong desire to simplify. My approach to a painting is to include the absolute minimum of information and detail necessary to convey my personal view of the composition and to do so with the minimum palette of flat colours.

I am a visual artist and my aim is for my work to stimulate the visual sense and leave the viewer with a feeling of pleased satisfaction.

I am much more interested in the aesthetic produced by the work than I am in its thematic content, which ranges from figurative to the purely abstract.
