STORIES WE TELL OURSELVES
Stories we tell ourselves by Rhonda Pryor makes use of reclaimed cloth and Belgian linen. Pryor geometrically abstracts hidden narratives, with references being made to people, situations and relationships in a study reflecting both living and deceased individuals, past and present situations, and personal and collective experience. The stitching together of old and new cloth is strongly suggestive of reconnection and mending.
Colour is explored relative to the presence and absence of individuals. The considered use of hand painted timber frames emphasises key elements in the compositions and narratives. Pryor’s usage of material tells a visual story through symbolic and abstract means that conveys a universal desire to connect.
Rhonda will be running a workshop alongside her exhibition.
