The Best of Janette Parris
Janette Parris, The Best of Janette Parris
This monograph, the first to be published on the artist, charts the various strands of Janette Parris's unashamedly eclectic practice, which includes video, animation, cartoons, musical opera and performance.
In her essay on Parris's work, Patricia Ellis notes, 'Far from being purely cynical, Parris writes the most sincere scenarios, plagiarising directly from real experience - her own, her friends', family and neighbours'... No matter how detached her personal revelations, there's always a downtrodden optimism for the underdog.'
