Nerrida Parfitt

I am a contemporary painter with formal education in visual art, multimedia and graphic design. Living in Victoria, I paint from my home studio, while also working as a
multimedia designer. Introduced to oil painting while studying a visual arts diploma in my teens, I’ve continued to pursue a passion for oil painting ever since.
As a representational artist, my artworks explore the relationship between the natural
world and the built environment.
Constructed from a combination of real and imagined scenes and elements, my
paintings often depict gothic scenes of the Australian landscape, sometimes with a
surrealist undertone.
Inspired by abandoned buildings, historical architecture, forgotten places and the
richness of the landscape, recurring themes of change and impermanence resonate
through my work.
