With strong connections to the land surrounding her, Carey has created a collection of beautifully rich art, using ancient techniques for her 2019 Solo Show at Thackeray Gallery, Kensington.
‘Contemplations’ is a selection of 30 uniquely stunning artworks. Carey uses meticulously sourced objects and materials for canvases, building upon each surface with egg tempera, gold leaf and walnut ink creating outstandingly individual paintings that are truly mesmerising.
“My paintings are informed by a life lived walking in the wild, foraging, working on the land, or in my studio, a haven of books, objects and painting materials, the very same that painters have used for millennia. Hours can pass staring at the world I inhabit, time stands still, all is timeless, trapped in the image, something resonates.”
Carey Mortimer, 2019
Carey has had multiple Public Commissions, to include the Chelsea & Westminster Hospital, English Heritage, the Sainsbury Commission and an Aids Baby Ward in Bucharest. She has been representated by Thackeray Gallery since 1994.
