Working mainly in oil and collage Margot Bandola's expressionistic painting explores the absurd and unfathomable providing a news bulletin from a shrouded ether world. Peppered with nocturnal characters emerging from the subconscious her paintings evolve twilight darknesses to reveal a pertinent fact. Everyone plays a role in the somnabulist state. Using colour, rhythm and texture she dynamically juxtaposes the savage and wry, revealing inner and outer space in the cerebellum jungle from a feminist point of view.
