Cornelia Parker born 1956, is a London-based sculptor and installation artist. She undertook her BFA at Wolverhampton Polytechnic and her MFA at Reading University. Parker’s work is regarded internationally for its complex, darkly humorous, ironic style. Her work is highly allusive and patterned with cultural references to cartoons, a style which she adapts to her need to capture things in the moment before they slip away and are lost beyond human perception. When examining her work holistically one can see the following themes driving her work forward consumerism, globalization, and the role of the mass media in contemporary life.
