Untitled painting by Moira Connelly

Oil and acrylic on canvas, 16 x 20 inches

Based in the processes of drawing and collage my work navigates historic/cultural moments through the examination of ephemera and objects. Working recently from 60s craft objects and weavings, the paintings are meditations on a moment that sought to renegotiate the autonomy of the individual and collective. Using these sources as points of departure I seek to bring these ideas in to a present tense in turn posing them as propositions to the viewer.
