Eve Parnell MA raises issues which our Society often struggles to address. Her unique artwork raises questions and sometimes provides an answer. Selected for the Royal Academy Summer Show 2018, and with solo exhibitions in Germany, Finland, Ireland and Italy, she has achieved a wide audience

Anne Stewart, Senior Curator of Fine Art, National Museums Northern Ireland says of Eve Parnell: "She has established an international career as a resourceful and highly accomplished draughtswoman. The impressive quality of her work is due in part to her decision to work in pencil on tissue paper, possibly the most sensitive and demanding of all surfaces. Parnell's technique requires enormous skill and confidence, as each mark is irreversible, yet despite these difficulties her drawings possess a fluidity that suggests the lightness and immateriality of thought. The fragility of Parnell's materials, and the graceful assurance of her drawing style combine to create work of remarkable subtlety."
