About this work of Art
The painting , Field, is from the Artist’s Intelligence of feeling series. Gina Parr’s working practice acts as a visual diary of her thoughts and feelings often based on the past, but sometimes on something seen, music heard, places visited and her everyday experience and mood.
This painting, Field, and many of her works feature a stab of intensified brilliant yellow, noticeable at certain times of year in the landscape, gorse or oil seed rape, theatrically lit by a shaft of sun.
When painting, she is completely immersed in the process, building a reverberating relationship with the canvas, a push and pull of chance and control. As much is taken away from the painting as is added, with constant building and washing of the canvas, aiming to invoke an atmosphere drawn from the process, the initial emotional trigger and the colour palette employed. She uses palette knife, cloth, brush and sponge to add, remove, scratch, blur and work the paint, sometimes utilizing large amounts of water poured down the canvas, making it necessary to paint in wellingtons…..
