Join Friends as we visit Moira de la Hunty’s studio to view her recent works and learn about her painting techniques. Influenced by her medical background and a lifelong interest in fashion, Moira’s work focuses on the many facets of human life. A particular interest is observing the person within a façade. This is evident in recent works depicting Queen Victoria and Victorian antiques (handstitched Victorian samplers, paintings of silver teapots, Victorian chairs) as well as Boy George in his elaborate outfits. She also likes to contrast earlier slower times with the frenzy of the social media age. Often her work is restricted to a monochromatic palette which assists in conveying the intense thought behind the work, a certain calmness and stillness that demands contemplation.

Date: Sunday 24 May
Time: 3-5pm
