Outdoor site-specific installation located downtown Orlando, Florida, entitled To the People of Orlando. Commissioned by Argentina based property developer, Real Estate Inverlad N. A. to be installed on their fourteen-story condominium building 101 Eola. It consists of fourteen 20' tall by 5' wide aluminum panels mounted on aluminum framing at three sides of the structure spanning a full city block.
The body of work is greatly inspired by, To the People of New York City, by the German born artist Blinky Palermo. Palermo, who studied under Joseph Beuys, was a colleague of Sigmar Polke and Gerhard Richter, became a pioneer of aluminum paintings which expound upon the appreciation of color meets line. To the People of New York City is a series of painted aluminum works that greatly celebrate this relationship.
Beyond the clean orderly component of the piece where each union of differing color and shape are clearly defined with a formal line, Parker diverges and calls attention to particular entities by highlighting with hand brushed marks. Further as with much of his work, he employs scientific notation to represent an analytical and critical approach.
