Fans of abstract art are in for a real treat when planning a trip to the English capital this summer, as renowned British artist Cornelia Parker is holding an exhibition of her esteemed works at a popular London venue.
Taking place at the Frith Street Gallery until the end of July, standout exhibits at the event will include Parker’s Spilt Milk (Jerusalem) and the acclaimed Prison Wall Abstract (A Man Escaped).
Spilt Milk is a play on words and relates to a photograph taken by Parker in 2012 of a glass of spilt milk on the streets of Jerusalem. The resulting image appears to show the pavement becoming a wall – an ironic metaphor for the walls that have been built between religions and states in this highly charged city.
Meanwhile, Prison Wall Abstract is a series of 12 photographs taken by the artist that highlight the process of creating beauty by accident.
They all show random black and white marks made by builders on the wall of Pentonville Prison, which, apparently without effort, bear a striking resemblance to abstract paintings by Robert Motherwell.
Overall, this is one exhibition that lovers of art will not want to miss when planning a trip to the heart of London.
