The exhibition Fertile Spoon will bring together the work of Grace Pailthorpe (1883-1971), Surrealist painter, psychoanalyst and psychiatrist, with that of contemporary painter Mary Stephenson (b. 1989), student at the Royal Academy Schools, London. Pailthorpe and Stephenson: two British artists living a century apart, remarking on the unruly depths of human psychology, and representing it through a world of surreal fantasy.  Marking fifty years since Pailthorpe’s death,  the exhibition will comprise paintings and works on paper by both artists, including July, 1948 (1948) by Pailthorpe that has never previously been publicly exhibited. What emerges from the artists’ shared exploration of the unconscious is a surreal dialogue formed in the logic of dreams and emotion, which asks that we look anew at the submerged recesses of the mind.

Exhibition curated with Chloe Nahum. Thanks to Austin/Desmond Fine Art and James Birch for their help and support with this exhibition.
