Cornelia O'Donovan

11 - 27 September 2014

As part of our ongoing series of Brief Encounter exhibitions, we are pleased to present a collection of new paintings by Cornelia O’Donovan.

Cornelia is a London-based artist whose work draws deeply on pre-Modern sensibilities. Her paintings have the feel of old tapestries, and explore the idea of a country house & garden as a kind of visual narrative. They are studded with rustic rough cut motifs, depicting period-dressed families alongside the fantastic animals that inhabit their storytelling world. Cornelia often takes snippets from some long buried local myth as a starting point for her paintings, and uses them as the gateway into her gardens, laying the paint in a loose, almost expressionistic way. As she weaves these different threads together, Cornelia creates works that feel of a tale retold over generations – meandering, non-linear, and full of fanciful exaggerations.
