Lil Sullivan, who is a multi-award winning artist as well as survivor of stroke, has a retrospective exhibition in Angell Town where much of the exhibited work is completed after her stroke.
The show, titled “Stations” – as in Stations of the Cross – follows Lil’s journey from her childhood on her parents’ farm in Killarney, County Kerry, Ireland to the streets of Babylon (London) using oil on canvas as well as in many striking compositions of found objects.
Discarded slate tiles, fragments of plastic toys, sweet wrappers and wheat ears falling down on the way to threshing her neighbor are built into secular icons that radiate loving memories, hope and victory over adversity. Many of the works can be purchased.
The show is helping to relaunch the London Stroke Choir after Covid, “Out of the Blue”, which was founded by Lil and others in 2013.
The show, which runs through Dec. 20, 2021, kindly hosts the Brixton Wings at Unit 4, Fairfax House, Overton Rd. SW9 7JR London, 1 to 4 weekdays and by appointment, Sundays, 2 to 3.
