May 22 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pmFree
Gray Loft Gallery is very pleased to present Ginny Parsons – solo show – a pop-up show at Gallery at the Werkshack in Oakland. Ginny has a B.A. in graphic design at California State University, Chico and also attended San Francisco School of Art and San Francisco State University. Her inspirations in art include Richard Diebenkorn, Henri Matisse, Claude Monet and Andy Goldsworthy. She teaches art to children, who also inspire her daily. But Ginny’s primary inspiration is her connection to nature and its elements where she finds continual motivation and subject matter.
Ginny is interested in dripping, pouring, splashing and moving paint. She works intuitively, using a variety of common household ingredients like beeswax, borax, castoff house paint and also natural materials. She uses whatever surfaces come her way – left by the dumpster, dropped on her porch by the neighbors or washed up from the estuary. Her imagery comes from nature, which is where she feels connection and inspiration.
