Exploring the balance of chance and control in the painting process, Parr is influenced conversely by a cramped childhood environment, her mother an extreme hoarder, and the open scape of Devon. Consequently she is interested in creating atmosphere, space and mood in work that is fundamentally…Show more abstract, the foundations born of figurative reference, defined by feeling: vulnerability, difficulty, loss and being lost, encapsulated in her journey as a female creative. Her Photographs, her way of Painting whilst traveling, create illusionary space from sometimes cramped and chaotic environments in urban India and the Far East.
Gaining a First Class Honours Degree in Fine Art, followed by work as a Set Designer for TV for 25 years, she returned to work as an Artist in 2007.
Her work is held in collections Worldwide including Keble College Oxford, Director of Jestico + Whiles Architects London, President of the Boston Children's Museum USA, and a Senior Economist at Goldman Sachs London.Show less
"I am a huge fan of Gina Parr’s work. Although the paintings are fundamentally abstract, there are clear references to landscapes. Her technique is particularly interesting through the sense of tension she creates in the work where the boundaries of chance and control meet on the canvas resulting in these wonderfully atmospheric works.
