In Winged Realm Jo Darvall takes her audience on a journey through a mythical dream of past encounters set in a fertile organic playground shapes and forms reference the lotus flower and bird like shrouded creatures leaving subtle ⠀
impressions of memory, past experiences lie deep within the papers textures. Tension and texture are at play as Darvall’s monoprints assemble and reassemble the lotus; the sacred symbol of purity in Buddhism, beauty in Hinduism ⠀
as well as its association with rebirth in ancient Egypt. ⠀
The titles pays homage to avant-garde experimental poet Christopher Barnett, ⠀
