Jaggedart presented an exhibition by four female artists whose works re-visit aspects, elements and objects of our familiar surroundings and the everyday. Notions of femininity, domesticity, home, memory and what makes something become familiar are explored.
-Exhibition created by Andrea Harari.
-Kathleen Mullaniff’s uses wallpaper as well as lace curtains, decorative printed fabric, photographic and illustrated floral imagery as a starting point in order to investigate the idea of home as a place laden with memory and cultural identity. Her Storyteller series is based on her mother’s recounting that her grandmother was a storyteller in rural Ireland. The repeated rose image makes reference to the wallpaper on the wall of her grandmother’s cottage which was the setting of her storytelling. The lightness and transience of a moving lace curtain is rendered permanent in an imprint of gesso and pigment. Whether obsessively copying an image, tracing it over and over again with carbon paper, transferring it onto canvas or re-drawing it in silver point, Mullaniff aims to fix a fleeting impression in time.
