Friday Night was an absolute charmer of an evening. I Popped into the February – 28 Paintings in 28 Days’ Exhibition with my trusty sidekick and photographer in crime, Grace Biddlecombe, and was greeted by a buzzing atmosphere – a room of smiling art appreciators, or perhaps they were Ria Parfitt fans. After all, the girl is a diamond. Grace snapped plenty of photographs for us to share with you and hopefully, inspire you to come along and experience Ria Parfitt’s playful art. Interpret as you wish!

The good news is she sold 14 paintings that night and several prints. On the second day she sold more. Wow. The prints are rather stunning as well, so you can pick one up if your favourite painting…

Hang time! Setting up my exhibition

It’s been a while since I last put on a solo exhibition. Gone are the days where you could just bang a nail in a wall “sigh”. My best buddy and occasional stress reliever, Mr Blu Tack has been banished too. Today I was at De Koffie Pot Gallery on Hereford’s Left Bank Village, hanging my new exhibition.  The complex is situated on the banks of the river Wye and has a beautiful feel to it. It’s a nice slice of city/country life.

Today was great. I had fun hanging my work and listening to all the activity going on around me. My February collection filled up the wall space nicely and I’m pleased with how it’s all looking. I have a few more finishing touches to add tomorrow morning and then the setup is complete and ready for the private view on the evening. I’ve made a playlist of the music i was listening to throughout my painting challenge which will be played at tomorrow nights viewing. I’m looking forward to it! Just got to decide what to wear 🙂

Ria parfitt exhibit at the koffie pot, March in Hereford Ria often focuses on certain facial features in her paintings, including the mouth. ‘

Artist and Musician Ria Parfitt has created a self-exploratory collection called‘February – 28 Paintings in 28 Days’  A challenge she set upon herself to create and complete paintings in an allocated time frame that wasn’t very generous. She successfully completed her daily tasks which then transformed into a deeper, more profound journey of self reflection as to how she approached her work gaining an enlightened understanding that she was more confidant than she had perceived herself to be.

Her work has roots in surrealism but not in the classic sense, she embraces Magic Realism, but I also notice Pop Art influences. I think of Ria’s art and music with her band Mexicolaas one of those summer fairs full of bright lights, lovers…
