Emrys Parry’s studio faces east and is sited on the eastern edge of East Anglia. Yet it is to the western edge of the United Kingdom and to his childhood home on the Llŷn peninsula of north-west Wales that much of his art refers. The largely Welsh speaking community of the small fishing village of Nefyn, remains a potent resource for deeply held traditions and above all the distinctiveness of its people. The landscape of Llŷn is equally profound in influence, with the profile of the peaks of Yr Eifl as seen across the bay from Nefyn recurring in his art as if witness to the people he has physically, but not psychologically, left behind.
