Fay Pomerance: Redemption
Durham University and Ushaw College present Redemption, an exhibition of little seen work by British Jewish artist, Fay Pomerance (1912-2001).
Pomerance stood apart from the mainstream of post-war British art. Throughout her life the artist experienced spiritual visions, which informed her dreamlike iconography and complex narratives. Building on the work of nineteenth-century visionaries such as William Blake, her unique style foreshadowed the flowing imagery of 1960s psychedelia. Pomerance's mystical faith was central to her work, and this exhibition explores her response to questions of evil and redemption.
