Recent Paintings 2010
Mc Connon’s recent paintings examine human narratives behind objects of worship. The work is based on votive offerings that she discovered on regular visits to the ancient catacombs.
Miriam’s paintings are dark in appearance, echoing the colours of the catacomb’s interior. Faded icons and votive offerings have become the central form in her work. The artist has scratched and scraped away any recognizable religious imagery in the paintings, leaving only the absence of a figure of worship to remain.
