Dream Houses: Jacqueline Dee Parker
Parker’s work cross-pollinates the artist /painter and poet psyche, she calls these art forms a visceral construction of space. The structures of collage paper resemble a balancing act of shape and color, layer and texture. "My paintings and poems rely on juxtaposition, metaphor, and the process of association, among other things, to express some sense of order, humanity, and emotional intent.
