CLINT PARKER (b. 1960, Royal Oak, United States) is an artist who is a furniture maker and sculptor. Questioning concepts of utility, movement and traditional materials, PARKER finds that he can reveal truths through self-examination and craftsmanship.
His artworks are notable for their detail in finish and tactile nature. This is of great importance and bears witness to great craftsmanship. By choosing formal, as well as, "outside the box" solutions, he brings art and craft to higher levels, which is executed using the clear formal rules of traditional artisanship.
His works isolate the movements of humans and/or objects. By doing so, new sequences are created which reveal an inseparable relationship between motion and static utility. By focusing on techniques and materials, he tries to develop forms that do not follow logical criteria, but are based only on subjective associations and formal parallels, which incite the viewer to make new personal associations.
His works are based on everyday associations. Multilayered images arise in which the fragility and permanence of our existence express themselves.
