Philomena Harmsworth, the dynamic new artistic presence in East Sussex is preparing her latest exhibition, entitled “Sugar and Spice”. Her new set of paintings will be at the Gullivers Hotel a stylish boutique hotel Gulliver’s in Brighton’s trendy Kemptown, on Brighton’s water front, from 31st March to 10th June , as part of the Brighton Fringe festival and Brighton Open House.
This innovative collection has some very unusual, unique paintings. The thread that runs through all of them is “women”, and the many overlapping aspects within that theme: there are strong archetypal woman figures; from earth mothers to girls in frilly dresses playing with dolls. Several of the paintings toy with metaphysics; exploring the interplay between surface appearance of manners and civilisation, and the truth of the dark undertones that can lie beneath.
