Home-Scapes II

7 August - 30 August

Home-Scapes II is a portrait of Mary Elizabeth O’Byrne, the artist’s godmother – an ordinary and extraordinary woman, a contemporary and intimate friend of Pridmore’s mother. Inspired by Virgina Woolf’s To The Lighthouse (for the artist Mary Pridmore, Mary O’Byrne was another Mrs Ramsay), and Edouard Vuilard’s suggestive, patterned interiors, these cigar-box-sized gouaches build a (loving) homage to Mary O’Byrne’s life.

It asks for our respect and attention. Will you look? Our 21st century lives run on fast forward. We actually live in a world which moves at a snail’s pace.
