Erik Parker - 20th Century & Contemporary Art Day Sale London Thursday, October 13, 2022 | Phillips
  • "Art to me, is a word that makes me nervous to begin with. We should hone it down… What is it to me? It is the thing that we can most identify as other worldly and it should be honest, and a little bit of irony – not too much. Don’t overload it with irony, it has to balance all these things and hover, it is almost cosmic, but not really. The work as you keep making it, keeps changing, always changes…" 
    —Erik Parker
