Visual Art: Not Half Right by Jane McCormick at the Atypical Gallery, Belfast

10 Nov - 21 Dec 2018 (Past)

Atypical Gallery, University of Atypical, 109-113 Royal Avenue, Belfast

The work in Not Half Right is a disjointed narrative of my chronically ill life as I enter my seventh decade with all guns not blazing.

It’s a monologue of misery made slowly with many intermissions, peppered with moments of levity to sweeten the pill.

The ephemera of a sick life and the associated pills, potions, cures and lotions are some of the themes in this work. It also explores rituals around healing and the never ending search for ‘the cure’. Over the years I have amassed a grand hoard of useless articles and medically related tat much of which has found it way into the drawings, prints and assemblages in this show.

Jane McCormick is a visual artist based in Cavan. She studied at NCAD Dublin and De Montfort University Leicester graduating in 1980 with Hons Degree in ceramics.
