About Gina Parr

Gina Parr is a British painter currently based in London's East End and Devon. She earned a First Class Honours Degree in Fine Art and shortly afterwards studied Set Design at Chelsea College of Art where she subsequently lectured. This led to a lengthy 25 year career in Set Design where she worked for major UK media channels such as the BBC.  

The Contrast of Extensive and Confined Spaces                                   

Parr focuses on the human condition and how this concept is often a doubled-edged sword through the style of abstraction. She finds inspiration from the immense beautiful landscapes of Devon as well as the lonely predicament of being the only child with a mother with a hoarding disorder. This resulted in Parr having mixed memories containing moments of light, darkness, and vulnerability. Therefore, she seeks to create order from chaos, always being completely in control of the space she creates in her work.
