Safety and Security

Deborah Poynton

Safety and Security


This catalogue accompanied Deborah Poynton's exhibition at Michael Stevenson in January 2006, comprising four large-scale paintings (each 2m x 6m): Betrayal, For Ever and Ever, Safety and Security and Surrender. Poynton explores the disjunctions between our inner worlds and outer realities, and the vulnerability and loneliness of everyday life, and the isolation of the individual in our noisy and crowded contemporary world, are immediately apparent in these works. The catalogue features an essay by Peter Rech, an art therapist and professor of art education at the University of Cologne, Germany.
