And you follow the road
And you get you back home.
Oh, no, never let spirit die
Oh, no, spirit don’t ever die…

Van Morrison, ‘Spirit’

It’s easy to imagine J.S. (John) Parker in his Blenheim studio energetically laying down paint with his trusty palette knife while the music of Van Morrison (‘Spirit’ is from his 1980 album Common One) blasts through the speakers. It is three years since Parker died (1944-2017) but his rare spirit lives on in these robustly lyrical paintings from the last decades of his career, on display at ARTIS Gallery from 4 - 23 August 2020.
