Painting Present tense from the series Days like these.

Days like these is a new series stemming from Parr’s previous series Public, Private, Secret, which related to the three separate areas, sometimes overlapping, which we inhabit in our daily lives.

This initial series was started at the end of 2019 and well before the Covid 19 Pandemic started, but whilst working on this body of work Parr found her practice, not surprisingly, affected by this strange and difficult time.

As she continued on with Public, Private, Secret, it became clear to her that it was providing perfect escapism, a freedom to experiment and explore the narrative of our shifted reality. "Days like these" continues on with this theme of daily life in the strange new world we find ourselves in. She employs dark saturated colour and intense often playful mark making to produce work that sometimes references the problems of the real world, and sometimes actively avoids it.

Painting from the series Spatial history.


In the series Spatial history, Parr revisits the memory of places and journeys that are often defined by emotion. Tensions between past and present, joy and saudade, presence and absence continue to inhabit her visual language, expressed through a set of coded references and metaphors which she explore through the balance of chance and controlled intention during the painting process.
