The ‘Pavilion of Painting’, an experimental art space with a focus on painting
in its widest form, from drawing to performance, figurative painting or landscape to abstraction.

A space for the imagination, encouraging and reflecting, with a knowing reference to a biennale pavilion or the Royal Academy ‘Summer Show’, a large open invitation and invited artists group show, and an artist residency programme on site.

The ‘Pavilion of Painting’ a survey of painting today, so vibrant in the area of Bath, Bristol and South West and celebrating collaboration with galleries and art schools: ‘a space for the imagination and a place for everyone to explore.’

Scenes from a Virtual Journal

Scenes from a Virtual Journal is a series of paintings by Rose Parker based on language collected from the Facebook posts of her grandmother’s travels in the Arctic Circle.

Rose was intrigued by what her grandmother wrote while travelling because her use of social media was atypical. Most people use photos and captions when posting about their travels, but Rose’s grandmother was unable to do this, as she felt that her camera was repeatedly failing to produce the images she wanted to create. Instead she resorted to language, in order to convey, not just what she saw, but her emotional responses

Rose thought it would be an interesting experiment to see if she could become a substitute for her grandmother’s camera and turn her descriptions into a visual representation of her experiences. Rose wanted a tangible link between her grandmother’s writing and her paintings and has created, in her works, a typography from words found within the original source text.

Graduated from Wimbledon College of Art in 2015, with a BA in painting, Rose lives and works in Waltham Forest.

Pour, Stitch, Press, Repeat

Pour, Stitch, Press, Repeat brings together the work of four artists Gayathri Anand, Liza Mackintosh, Charlotte Munro and Rose Parker. All of their practices operate in the field of painting and strong connections to processes and mark making. Each artist has a distinct relationship with the way in which they use and respond to marks and gestures. However, in all of the work these forms and shapes are not defined by the landscapes they are situated in, but set the boundaries of their own space.

Un Common Ground

We are a group of Wimbledon Painting students who have produced a group show, investigating the differences in our work. Each of our prctices has its own distinct method of working that contrasts with each other's: the spontaneous vs. the formulaic, the natural vs. the kitsch. The expanded field of painting is a current theme that is being explored a lot in contemporay art. This is reflected in this exhibition through works that incorporate elements such as the sculptural and the photographic.

Exquisite Corpse

January 01, 2020

Exquisite Corpse is a collaborative project by students from Wimbledon College of Art that aims to challenge the way we interact with our own and other artists works. The concept of the exhibition comes from the surrealist game Exquisite Corpse, or Consequences, where images or texts are created by each player taking it in turns to add to a sheet of paper or drawing. In our project each person involved has donated a past or present piece which they consider to be unfinished or which they feel they can take no further. From here another project member takes the piece on and re works or re invents it until they feel it has become a realised work. However, if they feel that the piece still needs work and they are unable to take it to a conclusion it is passed onto the next group member until the work is complete. The exhibition explores ownership of collective art and how different practices can interact and influence one another. Works exhibited also include pieces from the artists’ own practices, so that there can be an extended understanding of the dialogues between the works.

Erasmus Student Exhibition

From 16th to 21th of June a group of Erasmus students from Brera had an exhibition at Ex Chiesa di San Carpoforo – Via Marco Formentini – 20121 Milano. The exhibition space was a large and beautiful dis used church 5 mins from the school. For the show I displayed my work ‘Explain’ among a mixture of paintings, videos, graphics, photography, fashion, sculpture and performance.

From March till July 2014 I was living in Milan while studing at Brera Acadmey of Art.



"Saint Stephen" at the Pitt Rivers Museum

During my time amongst the collections of The Pitt Rivers Museum and The Museum of the History of science I noticed that spiritual artefacts played a significant role in both. This can be seen through the presence of a ‘Cimarutia’ amulet used to ward off the evil eye, which is presented as an early scientific and cultural object. This led me to observe that faith is key to many aspects of varying civilizations.  In Ancient cultures we this in the form of the Polytheism religions of the Mediterranean. Later there was a progression towards Monotheistic beliefs, such as Christianity. Faith fills our need for an explanation of how our world works and at a base level, why we are here. This usually takes the form of a creation story. In our current culture I believe that scientific theory and practice is more frequently fulfilling the necessity for understanding our place in the world.

These contemporary creation theories are what I have chosen to base this work on. The Big Bang and String theories which have become known as M theory are the currently accepted explanation behind the creation of the universe. Although scientific practice seems to be very separate from religion there are spiritual aspects to the work of a theoretical Physicists. For their work they must have faith in theories which cannot be experienced in any tangible form.  As well as this during early scientific practice religion was an integral factor. For example the Astrolabes in the Museum of the History of Science where used for mapping the heavens. They were spiritual instruments just as much as they were scientific ones.

This connection between faith and science is why I have chosen to create an early medieval reliquary dedicated to Stephen Hawking as well as the five String theories, eleven dimensions, and Membranes of M Theory.
