Janette Parris

Artists

Janette Parris is a contemporary artist who uses everyday people as the basis for much of her work, often reflecting the pathos behind an individual’s desire to become successful and well known. She works across different media including drawing, animation, and performance (musical and theatre) to reflect a dry and self-effacing look at the world and how we are all performers within it. Parris captures the humorous essence of life but always notes the sharp melancholic edge that goes with it.

In 2016 Peckham Platform commissioned Parris for Peckham Promenade. The resulting body of work takes inspiration from the characters, lives and daily interactions of the people living, working in and visiting Peckham’s bustling Rye Lane.

Her work was also part of the 2016 Peckham Platform Retrospective exhibition, a timeline of all 20 artists commissions realised by Peckham Platform between 2010 – 2016.
