Cornelia Parker


I have looked at this artist because she shows similarity and repetition in her works. I think Cornelia Parker's works are very special and they show the way she sees everything differently. Things are break into pieces and are hung in a shape of a cube, which makes everything look unique and regular though they are broken apart. They give viewers an exploded view of matter through this form of presentation. Things in each piece also seem to be frozen and stopped at the moment of explosion and give people a great amazement not only because of the scale of each work but also how the details of each piece give people a true and deep feeling and experience of the strong power of explosion as well as time being frozen. It is also very interesting how she chooses to use different materials, but still makes black and white as the major colour used.
