SELF-HELP

Gwenna and Ruby

Gwenna and Ruby

Its a case of like mother like daughter unless its the other way round and that would be unlikely. So now we have the in depth arts analysis out of the way it time to focus on Self-Help, an exhibition of out there paintings and ceramics by Gwenna and Ruby Green. The story of this exhibition goes that ” In 2013 Gwenna and Ruby, saw Netherlandishe Proverbs painted by Pieter Bruegel the Elder in 1559. … The work generated a discussion around the idea of proverbs and sayings; the ones we have grown up with that reflect our culture and values … As a mother and daughter we continued to think about the ways in which proverbs and other forms of shared knowledge come to bear on our lives   “.  The works in this very interesting exhibition focus on folklore and story telling in ways that capture the ingenuous essence of very old forms of communications between generations.

SELF-HELP at CCAS Manuka until 15 September.
