A new series of works by #paularego
is always a cause for celebration and on Saturday #regoseastories
opened at @jerwood_gallery.
Inspired by a 2005 story by Helia Correia called The Boy Who Loved the Sea, new paintings, drawings and sculptures investigates Rego's genius for storytelling. Stories have long been a fruitful source of subject matter for Rego and they function as a kind of self-examination. Her paintings, pastel drawings and prints are not simply illustrations of the specific events that she finds in stories but are reflection of her own experiences. The exhibition is on until 7 January 2018 and was made possible by 200 #arthappens
donors. Great show, great artist.
