"Everything must change" is from the series Spatial history, the title taken from Bernard Ighner's beautiful song, first released by Quincy Jones in 1974, poignant because this was the year the Artist's father died.
In the series Spatial history, Parr revisits liminally, the memory of places and journeys that are often defined by emotion. Tensions between past and present, joy and saudade, presence and absence continue to inhabit her visual language, expressed through a set of coded references and metaphors which she explores through the balance of chance and control during the painting process. She intends to create something that is ambiguous, moving, chimerical, organic and elemental.
Signed and dated on the side of the canvas the painting is ready to hang. The canvas is deep edged which shows small signs of the working process to the canvas side.
