Violet Costello @ Richard Saltoun Gallery

15 September 2020 - 21 September 2020

Violet Costello’s work is inspired by the complexities of the human condition: our quirks and familiarities, our moments of loneliness and moments of joy, the ways in which we identify and represent ourselves in and to the world. With a practice incorporating painting, sculpture and installation, Costello explores the home, familial relations and society’s ability to shape identity through figurative depictions of domestic scenes. A common thread in much of her work has been the consideration of the children’s world of play, a realm where reality readily gives way to, and is confused with, imagination – as can be seen in her ambitious series Bringing Home Baby. ¬†Amusing and unsettling, her work raises questions about the construction of identity and the nature of representation
