Intentionalism and the Arts

                             Gideon Parry's biography

Gideon graduated from Byam Shaw School of Art a number of years ago and has since pursed an interest in depicting everyday objects in his artwork.

His biggest influence is Morandi, especially after having seen his work in the flesh which sparked an unparaleled interest in pursuing similar subject matter.

Gideon is drawn to the theme of imperfection versus perfection, to the nature of the overlooked, the mundane, and the ordinary, which are akin to themes found in Zen aesthetics. There is a secondary element which runs through the work too, a sexualized element, hinted at by the phallic shapes of the objects depicted.

Gideon has exhibited in numerous exhibitions and has been selected in the past for the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition.
