Cornelia O'Donovan - Such Was That Happy Garden
Cornelia O’Donovan trained at the Royal College of Art and lives and works in London. Roughly rendered yet delicately arranged, she creates patterned compositions reminiscent of old tapestries into which she plants naive pre-Modern motifs. She draws on tales native to the British Isles, particularly Celtic poetry and myth. Her paintings are flat, stripped of all perspective or realism, their surfaces hazy and meandering like an old tale retold a thousand times. Her work is held in private collections in the UK and overseas.
