About the art
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 everyday experience.
This work was inspired by and references both the global concerns of our poor treatment of the oceans and other waterways, and the captivating underwater imagery of the recent discovery of Ernest Shackleton's ship Endurance, which was crushed by Antarctic ice and sank some 10,000 feet (3,000 metres) to the ocean floor in November 1915.
The Artist says of her practice,
"Scape, memory and identity are ever present in my work. My childhood, spent diversely in wide-open spaces with my father fishing for mackerel and at home with my mother's hoarding and mental health issues, defined my relationship to the sea and land and consequently my art practice: The uncertainty of the deep, the spirit and memory of open spaces, evoking freedom and connectedness.
Ready to hang and signed on the canvas deep edge.
Based in: Exmouth Devon and East London
