Jane Parker’s paintings and drawings richly avoid the sin of description while evoking a plethora of riches. They lead to a specificity of place and object only possible in the ambiance of the imagination—a place somewhere between music and a walk in the woods. Her work is to be entered rather than seen—experienced rather than admired. She consistently eschews artifice in favor of a reality that is less probable than palpable.
