Gina Parr

Gina Parr is a Painter who also “paints with a camera” when traveling.

The image of the sea and the Artist’s thoughts about memory and identity are ever present in her work. Her childhood, spent diversely in wide-open spaces, fishing for Mackerel with her father, and her mother with her hoarding and mental health issues defined the Artist’s relationship to the sea and land, the uncertainty of the deep, the spirit and memory of the open space, evoking freedom and connectedness. She does not wish to recreate those experienced places, but to unearth the truth, to centralise the feelings and emotions that were and are present, to not be afraid of the material of her past. The Artist’s work is an expression of the intermingling of both joy and pain: the human condition.

Gina Parr was originally trained as a Fine Artist, graduating with a First Class BA Honours Degree.

She went on to Chelsea College of Art to study set design, leading to a 25 year career Production Designing many prestigious shows for television.

She returned to her Artist’s practice in 2007.

She has also lectured in art and design at Chelsea College of Art and Nottingham University, is widely exhibited in galleries and art fairs in the UK and Europe. She is an Associate member of The Society of Women Artists in London and has works held in collections Worldwide including; Keble College Oxford, Director Jestico + Whiles Architects London, President Boston’s Children’s Museum USA, Senior Economist Goldman Sachs, Argentex and Vedanta Headquarters in London, and Commissions in UAE, Belguim + London.

In this first phase we have included a diverse selection of artists we collaborate with.

Over the coming months this selection will continue to grow eventually to include all of our artists.

In the near future our artwork selection, frame visualisation and costing database will come on-line.

This will allow the selection of artworks and frames, see a visualisation of the framed artwork and include this in a portfolio for purchase.

Jad Oakes

London-based Jad Oakes explores the possibilities of photography and the moving image for sculptural installations, prints and photogravures.

His works are presented as collections or bodies of work that are connected by their process, theme and technique. The main thread that ties these bodies of works together is a fascination with memory and time.

Since 2014 he has developed and nurtured an ongoing series of small scale silent looping film installations housed in wooden sculptures titled Vessels.

Condensed Vessel Videos:

Dreams of Somewhere Else
Moonscape 50
Memory Vessel

Using timbers of Oak, Walnut and Bog Oak these moving image sculptures seek to connect with the viewer by projecting them into an alternative space and time.

Of the Vessels series he notes a desire to “create intimate emotive sculptures, enticing contemplation and memory.”

Jad Oakes was awarded the Aesthetica Prize at the 2019 ING Discerning Eye Exhibition.
