Miriam Mc Connon’s recent work presents paintings and drawings of domestic objects. She is preoccupied with the nature of these objects and their narratives. The work is concerned with the human connection to the domestic object.
Miriam examines to what extent do domestic rhythms and the objects that occupy these rhythms shape our memories and our emotional attachments. It is the preoccupation of gender association with the domestic object that interests her.
This recent body of work aims to create discussion around the importance of femininity in the domestic world. It also aims to question if its heavy association with the domestic scene undermines the strength and influence of femininity in our sense of home and in turn the role of the female in the domestic realm.
