Beneath is an original seascape painting by Gina Parr.
Painting Beneath, from the series Spatial history. This series is a continuation of her previous series River meets sea, inspired by childhood memories of day fishing for mackerel with her father where she continues exploring the fine line between pure abstraction and figurative recognition, between chance and control during the painting process. Spatial History, is a series driven by autobiographical themes and figurative reference, whilst also exploring the human condition through connections to place, space, memory and its underlying psychology.
Gina Parr works predominantly in the medium of painting, but also photographs when traveling: her way of painting whilst on the move.
