Simple Sanctuaries - A Solo Exhibition by Angela Maloney at Nuneaton Museum & Art Gallery

Published on Friday, 6th December 2019

A collection of haunting images are about to land at Nuneaton Museum and Art Gallery!

Angela Maloney’s tonal paintings, drawings and print works suggest a world that is familiar, yet at the same time holds a sense of mystery.

Temporary shelters; places of refuge now seemingly abandoned are unveiled alongside mysterious masked bee keepers. The use of green hues and saturated colouring speaks of dreams or half-formed memories.

This poignant exhibition touches upon social concerns for our environment; ideas of identity, and questions around the stability of a fixed home in the modern world.

Maloney is a Master of Fine Arts graduate from Coventry University who regularly exhibits regionally and nationally. She was recently picked to showcase work for the Coventry University Drawing Prize 2019 and was a prize winner in the 2014 West Midlands Open.

Lucy Morrison, Exhibitions Officer for Nuneaton Museum & Art Gallery says:

“Such an intriguing exhibition! These other-worldly paintings really stick with you and there’s interesting conversations to be had here about the relationships between man and nature.”
