We first posted the brilliant Maisie Broadhead on the site in 2009 and we’ve vaunted her talents both online and in print pretty regularly in the past four years. Maisie was selected for this year’s Jerwood Makers Open; a showcase for “rising stars” which comes with £7,500 commissions. She made the most of her grant, creating a series of pictures inspired by Paolo Veronese’s Allegory of Love (1575) – each one representing one of four different facets Veronese identified; Scorn; Unfaithfulness; Respect and Happy Union.
Drawing on her experience with creating physical objects (she studied jewellery at the RCA), Maisie has produced four handmade pieces – in wood, glass, plastic and metal – around which her intriguingly strange tableaux are built. Heady stuff indeed from one of our favourites.
Jerwood Makers Open is on show at London’s Jerwood Space from tomorrow until August 25.
