Something beneath what is beneath
Painting from the series Spatial History.
In the series Spatial history, Parr revisits 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, whist she explores the balance of spontaneity and considered control during the painting process.
Parr uses palette knife, brush and sponge building up layers of paint and charcoal and washing away in a process that becomes as important to remove as to add, a kind of reverberation of relationship with the canvas of addition and subtraction, push and pull.
The artist intends to create something that is ambiguous, chimerical, organic and elemental.
Signed and dated on the side of the canvas. The canvas is deep edged 4cm which shows small signs of the working process to the canvas sides.
