John Parks

John Parkes is an Australian artist who uses pre-used textiles and over works them with complex layers of stitching.
"Parkes’ works with second hand/recycled/found cloth is underpinned by notions of decomposition and temporality, the recognition that neither cloth nor user will last forever. Whether small fragments to affix talisman-like to clothing or larger pieces for the wall, his works reflect gentle processes of layering and stitching. India Flint
