For Wilma Parker, flowers have been a medium of person expression since she started painting them several years ago. Her art hovers between paintings as personal, poetic statements and those that are meticulous descriptions of the real. Though the inflorescences of her recent flower paintings are scientifically identifiable, their sublimation of detail and the patterning of the leaves and petals transport them into the realm of the abstract. These paintings depict Parker’s flowers of the mind that possess a sense of the absolute and universal.
Highly influenced by the still life tradition, Parker’s work demonstrates the lessons of the camera’s vision of reality. Her contemporary views invite the empathy and imagination of the modern viewer, and encourage an understanding of the organic world of plants.
