Anton Parsons


an unauthorised biography


an unauthorised biographyCasual but calculated is the arrangement of Anton Parsons' exhibition, An Unauthorised Biography, scattered across the front room floor of Jonathan Smart Gallery. One might need a calculator too, for there are 70 blocks covered in numbers, all beautifully finished and begging re-arrangement, available singly or in groups of play. Each richly coloured block denotes a year between 1925 and 1994.


All works are lacquer and vinyl on aluminium, from 2010, and measure 300 x 300 x 150mm.
