“The remains of the day” is from the River meets sea series. Inspired by the Artist’s childhood memories of fishing for mackerel with her father whilst also considering where "exactly" the river meets the sea, Parr explores the fine line between pure abstraction and figurative recognition, between chance and control working with oil and acrylic on canvas.
She would like to convey a mood, an atmosphere, a suadade, (a love that remains) for the viewer.
Signed and dated on the side of the canvas the painting is ready to hang. The canvas is deep edged which shows signs of the working process to the canvas side.
