Secrets and Sanity - Megan McCarthy
19 July to 14 August 2019
Opening launch: Friday 19 July 2019 at 6pm. All welcome.
Contemporary western society has led to domestic isolation. In our pursuit for independence and wealth, we have isolated ourselves from the village.
The works in this exhibition represent a mental state, one of isolation in a domestic world. The combination of lace and crochet, which are traditionally feminine, is contradicted through the use of cement, which is traditionally masculine.
The works provide a visual image of a mental state.
