Paula Rego @ Victoria Miro Gallery
22 September 2023 - 11 November 2023
Letting Loose, is an exhibition of works by Paula Rego from the 1980s, a period of liberation and self-discovery that led to great breakthroughs for the artist and saw her first major exhibitions in the UK and the US.
‘These paintings, perhaps more than any others, helped her to understand herself and those close to her.’ – Nick Willing
For Paula Rego the 1980s was a decade of creative transformation. She began to engage with her childhood passion for painting as play. Working rapidly and fluidly, Rego embraced freedom as methodology, inventing a cast of humans, animals and hybrid creatures that, in turn, empowered her to tell her own story.
