About J. Parker Valentine

J. Parker Valentine’s process-laden drawings and installations lay bare her meticulous way of working wide-ranging surfaces from MDF panels to scraps of fabric to that of the wall. Her diverse practice also includes film, photography, painting, sculpture, and text. Drawing and erasing her marks, she photographs her process and often incorporates these images with new drawings. Born in Austin, in 1980, she splits her time between Texas and Brooklyn, New York. Valentine has had solo shows at Taka Ishii in Kyoto, Supportico Lopez in Berlin, Peep Hole in Milan, and Lisa Cooley in New York; she will have a solo presentation at the Langen Foundation in Dusseldorf this year, and will be included in Phaidon’s soon-to-be-released anthology on drawing, Vitamin D2.
