The dreamlike and impressionistic aspects of Parks’s color landscape photography lead fluidly into his late abstract compositions, which he characterized as “horizons of imagination” (Half Past Autumn, 1997). Combining elements of painting, sculpture, and photography, these compositions often included fl oral still lifes—flower petals and diaphanous fabrics were among his favorite subjects—positioned before brightly colored and dramatically lit backgrounds. Despite his advancing age, Parks made these images at a remarkable rate, claiming he felt compelled to create his own hills, mountains, and valleys. These exploratory works provide a poetic coda to his career, the last expressions of his singular creativity.
