Alan Parry has been busy during the last year producing a new collection of paintings for the gallery. These are very much inspired by what people were doing during the months of lockdown – spending time outdoors in their gardens and local parks.
In his beguiling new show, Alan Parry returns again, not only to celebrate the beauty of the English outdoors, but to explore the world of flamingos and parrots in the tropics.
A welcome return for Alan Parry, who takes inspiration from previous generations of English rural painters such as Paul Nash. For all his paintings' ambiguity, they remain sumptuous and reveal Alan’s dreamy vision of England and her gardens.
Alan is recognised as one of England's finest landscape painters after many decades of diligent work. This new show consolidates his status.
Alan Parry's wonderfully tranquil paintings shimmer with the warmth of late summer English evenings. Many of them were painted in the heart of England near his home in Worcestershire, where the fruit trees burst into blossom and there's Elgar on the soundtrack.
In the greatest English gardens, there's immense structure and formal planning underpinning the glory of nature. Alan's works are the same: they're simply beautiful, but you get the impression that every inch of the canvas has been carefully considered before a single brushstroke is applied.
Every one of the works on display bursts with floral splendour.” Imogen Green Director Catto Gallery
