Cornelia Parker is most well known for her large-scale installations of transformed or destabilized objects that re-emerge in surprisingly beautiful forms. For her recent series of work, referred to as “bullet drawings,” Parker melts lead bullets into wire and uses it to map out unique grids that float in three-dimensional spaces. Three of her “bullet drawings” were recently on view in the group exhibition On Line: Drawing through the 20th Century at The Museum of Modern Art, New York. Her work is represented in numerous public collections, including The Museum of Modern Art, New York and the Tate Gallery, London.
