Miranda Donovan

Miranda Donovan's work combines one of art's most traditional and supposedly soothing formats – the landscape – with rudimentary but vivid forms of graffiti; her own tag, Tear, appears regularly. However, the work is far less cosy than it may seem, posing inquisitive and quietly confrontational questions about this generation's relationships with our upbringings, idealism, and civil responsibility. What makes an idyll and what contributes towards a dystopia? One is reminded of infamous Soho-ite, commentator, and drunk Jeffrey Bernard who allegedly claimed that despite feasting his eyes upon the architectural wonders of the ancient world, he had "never seen anything quite so beautiful as the rotting fruits and vegetables of Berwick Street market".
