Mike Parr, KINDNESS IS SO GANSTA, until 21 December, Anna Schwartz Gallery

October 8, 2018

KINDNESS IS SO GANSTA is a solo exhibition of new work by Buxton Contemporary Collection artist Mike Parr.

Open until 21 December at Anna Schwartz Gallery, this exhibition marks a new development in Parr’s long-standing ‘Self Portrait Project’: investigating the possibilities of glass as a sculptural medium. Parr’s self portraits are produced blind, the artist’s sight replaced by his other senses as he forms his visage from blocks of clay. Hefty and misshapen, the resulting glass sculptures are scattered through the gallery, complemented by a wall drawing – also performed blind.
