Gazelli Art House exhibition
While a lot of Jane McAdam Freud's sculptures examine the tumultuous relationship she had with her absentee father (her mother Katherine uprooted Jane and her four siblings from their Paddington home to move to sleepy Roehampton and didn't see Lucian for 23 years) this new series of work at Gazelli Art House turns to the nurturing figure of the mother. You'll find a series of found objects wrapped in mesh wire at this contemporary art exhibition, which contemplates the Freud family history, sexuality and the raw unconscious laid bare. From baby bottles to soft toys, McAdam Freud addresses the mother as source of creation and a force of shaping and moulding a child's life.
It's clear Jane McAdam Freud still has a lot to get off her chest about family life, but this exhibition is a fascinating insight into the artist's psyche and completely worthy of recognition in its own right.
