Primmy Chorley

6 April – 14 July 2019

Another World

The act of sewing by hand and machine is ever present in Primmy Chorley’s work, as is washing and baking, and walking in the woods and working in the garden. This is the lived everyday, depicted with a purity of intent that borders on innocence. It is the wonder of the commonplace made manifest in simple forms and humble materials. Home, family, the surrounding land and beloved dogs: these are the focus of her thoughts, feelings and imaginings. Every piece made is a tangible memory of love, joy or loss. It is something deeply personal yet, as with the best of art, something that can draw a profound response from the heart of the receptive other.
