Anton Parsons’ practice embraces a broad range of media encompassing industrial materials, readymade objects, photography and installation. Concepts are realised with seemingly insignificant ephemera that often accrue new meanings independent of the artist’s original vision when redefined, reconstructed and re-presented.
Parsons graduated from University of Canterbury School of Fine Arts, Christchurch in 1990. His works are held in numerous public and private collections including, Chartwell Collection, Auckland, Govett Brewster Art Gallery, New Plymouth, Christchurch City Council Art Gallery, Christchurch. Anton Parsons established his shared studio at Corban Estate Arts Centre in 2015.
