MARY LOW - Mold
I make visual forms of concepts, emotions, and time passing.
I would normally describe
myself as an abstract artist but during the lockdowns I began to paint figuratively for thefirst time in 30 years.
These paintings, my ‘changelings’, explore the themes of identity,
intimacy and implicit memory.
The most recent paintings, ‘Lost Family’, revolves around the themes of the myth of the
ideal childhood, the temporary dreamlike quality of reality and an unconscious search for something lost.
The finished work aims to capture an ambiguous feeling, through images that have an
underlying strangeness, sadness or an uneasy atmosphere.
