Priscilla’s favourite location for her painting is Brockwell Lido, as it celebrates the interaction between light and the human figure. In her words “Light creates feelings. Light and darkness working together. You cannot have one without the other and its combination triggers an emotional response in the brain. Also, the underwater pictures often show a figure from the head down, which for me symbolises the unconscious, that ignored bit of ourselves. It reminds the viewer that they can always be peaceful and themselves, even when it’s noisy up top. And I think when you simplify an image to just a figure, light, and water you create a sense of leaving the world behind that can be quite powerful.”
Exhibition will run from 19 to 25 August at Studio 73 Gallery in Brixton Village.
