The atmosphere in Jill Mulleady’s paintings is one of foreboding; of an underlying tension about to be unleashed.
Tragedy lurks in open suitcases, displays of sea creatures, and sinks filled with dirty dishes. Another nightmarish layer lies dormant behind the dream like setting of almost all her compositions.
You can’t quite put your finger on it: it lies in the future, beyond the painting. It is the feeling of change yet to come.
