As an artist-maker, I’m often looking to create work in response to a specific location. David Parr House provides so much to take in and enjoy. I’m always spotting something I’ve not noticed or reflected on before, whether it be a complete panel David Parr has meticulously painted, or a little detail which sparks a thought for a motif or form.
Some pieces in this series will be one-offs, while others will be repeated with subtle variations. My hope is that as well as being a joy to own and use, they will trigger memories of where and when they were bought.
