Kenton Parker’s works (paintings, sculptures, drawings, installation, and video), conceptual in nature, are inspired by an honest response to humanity, perversion, attitude, and the intellect commonly associated with rebellion. Parker’s creative process exists on multiple plains. Hidden away in Parker’s studio, you find basic text, simple concept, amusements, sexual deviation, and human response crudely written over thousands of sheets of paper. Each concept fragile as the next, Parker cultivates these documentations into refreshing contemporary works that take cue from his daily adjustment. Parker consistently pulls inspiration from everything Los Angeles and his ironic passage through his own personal history.
