Embossed enamel sign with hand-painted white lettering
Published by Plinth supporting Ikon 50, 2015
Dimensions: 487 x 248 x 8mm, Limited edition of 50, Signed by the Artist
Artist: Cornelia Parker
This limited edition is based on a photograph Cornelia Parker took of a battered parking notice on a 1960’s council estate in North London. Of the piece, the artist says "The signs are ubiquitous in London, displayed on all the estates of the period. Isolated from its context the instruction can refer to anything you want it to. Stop eating, Stop drinking, Stop smoking, Stop thinking, Stop worrying, Stop. The fact it is made in enamel means it has a certain authority commanding you to submit, (or to ignore if that is what you usually do to signs!). The black enamel encroaches on the white word, semi-submerged it suggests the viewer is perhaps leaving it a little too long to respond."
