Moyna Flannigan: Matter, the artist’s first exhibition at Ingleby Gallery in Edinburgh, features paintings of figures, always women, which are an amalgam of memories, experiences and ideas drawn from history, mythology and popular culture. Their identity or essence remains ambiguous, as if they were just passing through or suspended just out of reach. Combining incidental humour with a dark, almost melancholic sensibility, Flannigan’s work often begins by chance, as she cuts up her own drawings and reuses the abstract body parts to create a new order from the original components – an attempt, in part, to understand the fragmentary way we experience and process a world saturated in images and information.
