he work in Not Half Right exhibition is a disjointed narrative of the artist Jane McCormick’s chronically ill life as she enter her seventh decade with all guns not blazing. She describes it as a monologue of misery made slowly with many intermissions, peppered with moments of levity to sweeten the pill.
The ephemera of a sick life and the associated pills, potions, cures and lotions are some of the themes in this work. It also explores rituals around healing and the never ending search for ‘the cure’. Over the years McCormick have amassed a grand hoard of useless articles and medically related tat much of which has found it way into the drawings, prints and assemblages in this show.
