Gareth Parry was born in the slate quarrying town of Blaenau Ffestiniog, North Wales, in 1951. After leaving school he went on to study at the Manchester College of Art in the late 1960’s. Following that, he worked at a local mine for two years before starting to paint once again, embracing all that came his way, illustrating or undertaking commissions as varied as landscapes, portraits and still lifes.

For many years he painted en plein air only, “the best training I could ever have had”, before reverting to studio work based on sketches and memory, which he thinks of “as the companion of observation”. His landscapes and seascapes, whilst inspired by his local environment of Wales, are more about weather and the natural elements than the place alone.  He works predominantly with a palette knife, creating extra-ordinary energy and light with the paint.  He lets the paint ‘do the work’, creating paintings with great freedom and expression.

Gareth has exhibited over many years in both London and Wales, and his work can now be found in both Public and Private Collections.

Gareth Parry has been exhibiting with Thackeray Gallery since 2007.
