Monday 20th August - Exhibition by Judy Carroll Deeley ‘Paraphernalia' ~ Exhibition

Exhibition By Judy Carroll Deeley 300w

Judy Carroll Deeley’s paintings are concerned with illuminating the strange or mysterious qualities that haunt everyday objects.
In Paraphernalia the source of her work is a number of gifts of kitchen implements she received for her wedding but never used. Now largely rusting or otherwise discoloured or dilapidated, the act and fact of painting these objects is her way of ‘reclaiming’ them and acknowledging the temperament she feels pertains to them on taking a fresh, long-delayed look.
