Welsh Mixed Media Artist Emrys Parry at Mandell’s Gallery, Norwich
October 26, 2019 @ 12:00 am
Emrys Parry is an artist living and working in Great Yarmouth returning regularly to Wales to draw and make notes, which are developed further in the studio. Born in 1941 he grew up on the Llŷn Peninsula, which has a strong influence on his work. He taught for over thirty years at Great Yarmouth College of Art and Design and Norwich School of Art and Design and retired from teaching in 1997 to work full time as an artist. Emrys specialises in drawing and paintings, which explore the mystery lurking behind the outward appearance of the landscape of his childhood.
His bold and vivid artworks transcend Picassoesque Cubism to depict form, memory, landscape, animals and people in ink, paint and phone directories!
“I am interested in the imprint of man on his environment and how past thoughts and actions of individuals are recorded and transmitted by the objects they leave behind. I believe that things created with love have a memory and warmth which is accessible to those who seek it for all time.” – Emrys Parry
Sat 5 Oct 12pm–4pm. Exhibition continues until 26 Oct 2019.
