During this research residency, Jonathan Parsons will use the gallery as a laboratory to create test pieces derived from data arising out of his current PhD studies at the University of Gloucestershire. He will make a suite of new modular + serial works that explore various methods of production + display, including object-based installations + wall drawings of basic scribble forms.
Please join us for a viewing + discussion event, with Jonathan Parsons in conversation with Don Parker and Angus Pryor, on Thursday 30th November, 5.00-6.30pm.
