Alistair Parker’s work is informed by a life long enthusiasm for photography and his background as a scientist. The work brings together an innovative fusion of photography, digital imaging and fine art. His approach is highly experimental and combines a range of unconventional materials and processes in addition to the more traditional art media. Much of his work is created using an experimental printing process often in a mixed media context. The process is based on the transfer of digitally printed imagery using polymer media.
Parker’s current work involves the portrayal of people in urban space together with the aesthetic of urban decay through an exploration of layers of history, nostalgia, space and place. His work is informed and influenced by a range of contemporary artists, one of his early influences being the work of Bill Jacklin. Parker is particularly drawn to the fusion of street art styles and traditional fine arts.
