June’s work commonly contains solitary human beings who are unable to ‘speak’.
Carey conveys their thoughts and feelings using a symbolic language, which is made up of written words (often in Latin) and images depicted on the body. Foreign travel, as well as unusual objects and places are a great source of inspiration.
Working in a wide range of media including painting, pastel drawing, printmaking and three dimensions, it is June Carey’s drawing that is at the root of everything she creates.
This exhibition brings together a selection of work inspired by many different cultures throughout the world, as well as June’s most recent visit to Greece.
