About Jacki Parry
Former Head of Printmaking at Glasgow School of Art (1991- 2001) Jacki Parry’s work requires a form of reading without words. Born in Australia, Jacki has lived in the UK since 1965. Her work responds to changes in landscape and the elements and to information, its containment and manipulation.
Implements in their Places 
Etching on hand-made paper, 53 x 73.5 cms
Donated by the artist to 'Cambridge: Glasgow - Ten Prints for New Hall' (Hughson Gallery, Glasgow, May 2000)
In Implements in their Places, shreds of computer paper are caught and embedded in the paper pulp, and are held in the finished paper like calligraphic marks. The etched plates carry an additional set of marks, and images of tools which she has sculpted in paper. In combination, paper and plates carry a richly textured and allusive work which operates on many levels. It is, she says, a text without words.
