Gina Parr is a painter and photographer who 'paints' with her camera when traveling.
The Artist says,
"Scape, memory and identity are ever present in my work. My childhood, spent diversely in wide-open spaces with my father fishing for mackerel and at home with my mother's hoarding and mental health issues, defined my relationship to the sea and land: both the spirit and memory of wide open space and the dark uncertainty of the deep. My work is an expression of the intermingling of joy and pain, love and loss: the human condition and tracks the line between abstraction and figuration. I seek to find an emotional balance within my work, which I hope will speak to the viewer’s inner self.”
Originally receiving a First Class BA Honours Degree in Fine Art, she went on to Chelsea College of Art to study set design, leading to a 25 year career Production Designing many notable shows for BBC and ITV Television, returning to her full time Art practice in 2007.
