More about this exhibition

Brody-Lederman’s original interest in poetry has fused with art-making that finds its subjects in the basic aspects of everyday domestic life. Her paintings depict familiar images such as trees, stools, roads and rivers that are purposely portrayed in an unschooled quality to better represent human feelings. As Brody-Lederman explains, “there is an interplay of word and image” in her work, “created to reveal underlying psychological content. Words are edited ruthlessly and are distilled into a poetic compositional form.”
