2016 marks 50 years since celebrated West Auckland artist John Parker started making pottery.

To mark the occasion, Te Uru Waitakere Contemporary Gallery in Titirangi is presenting a major exhibition and launching a new book, both titled John Parker: Cause and Effect, to survey his extraordinary 50-year career of breaking rules and redefining what it means to make pottery in Aotearoa. Cause and Effect is exhibiting now at Te Uru Waitakere Contemporary Gallery until 13 November 2016.

Cause and Effect explore the different ideas and experiences that continue to influence Parker’s work, often recurring in a cyclical fashion over periods of time and leading him in surprising new directions. This includes exploring the relationship between the otherwise estranged worlds of handmade craft and machine production, experimentation with fiction and narrative themes, but always through a love affair with surface and materiality - he enjoys treating his finishes as a kind of clothing that can reveal or conceal the sensuous, highly worked forms beneath.

Cause and Effect features an ambitious new work, Clear and Present Danger, an installation made especially for the exhibition. Produced in collaboration with lighting designer, Phillip Dexter, it features 200 white grooved cones made from porcelain.

Cause and Effect is also part of Artweek Auckland 8 - 16 October, see their website for full programme.
