Carey Mortimer @ Thackeray Gallery

May 7, 2019 - May 24, 2019

The techniques and materials that Carey Mortimer uses are quintessential to her work. The paintings’ beginnings go far beyond the first brush strokes, with pigments being ground from collected rocks, coral and burnt vines, ink taken from local cuttlefish, an awareness of the origins of all the material aspects of the final piece. Carey is a contemporary British painter who uses these ancient techniques to convey her very modern concerns, transforming often bleak issues into a resolved and peaceful work, a moment of calm reflection.
