Headless Woman with Parrot
Floating corpses and torsos, pastel colours - the paintings combine the dreamlike preciseness of illustrations with drastic motives to form pleasurable but slightly nightmarish visuals. Contextualised by the poem from Charity Coleman, a lyrical melange of deranged objects in fantastical environments arise.
Paintings and their corresponding studies are reproduced in this survey of the artist’s work from 2011 to 2017. An essay by curator Jeff De Blois examines art historical references and conceptual influences.
