Finding Spells

Finding Spells

Paintings and prints by Jill Newman all found and recycled objects such as Barbie dolls and shoes on the theme of liberation from fairy tales.

''I hear stories on the news. People imprisioned, oppressed,
missing.
I think about Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Rapunzel, the Little
Mermaid.
I decide to make art with the shoes.
They are lovely shapes and textures.
Some are quite impossible or painful to walk in.
I now start to find all sorts of urban detritus, abandoned on the
streets. I think
About Serendipity and magic – and how mundane it really is.
I want to weave into each art piece, a means of escape, liberation,
discovery. Or simply help to find their sole-mates (sorry!)
I dedicate my work to everyone who feels lost, trapped, dormant,
undiscovered and hope you find release, awakening, realised,
yourself!''
