|James Parker is an Australian painter and designer based in Jakarta Indonesia. The works range in style from decorative suggestive figurations of simple graphic motifs to purely abstract expressionistic explorations, Utilized in the paintings derive from contemporary and historic design, applied arts and architechture. Symmetry is a starting point and a central concern. The works are arranged in precise compositional structures, created through a layering and collage of elements painted and printed. The resulting relationships between evocative or symbolic graphic motifs, pure abstraction and representation occur in a format of symmetry, of reflection, of the simultaneous and parallel.
