About the artist
Gina Parr works predominantly in the medium of painting, but also photographs when traveling: her way of painting whilst on the move. Her work is driven by autobiographical themes and natural reference, exploring the human condition through connections to place, time, space and memory.

She returned to work as an Artist in 2007, bringing her creative experience as a designer to her practice.

The Insider Rebecca Gordon says:
"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.
