Anne Patterson’s collection at Derry’s Warehouse gallery really is something to behold. Too ornate to simply hang in any gallery, too spectacular to be locked up in a case in a museum, unlooked upon, unappreciated.

Anne Patterson’s collection at Derry’s Warehouse gallery is something to behold. Too ornate to simply hang in any gallery, too spectacular to be locked in the case of a museum, un-looked upon, unappreciated. Song of Songs speaks of times gone by, of childhood, of long innocent days at school with life ahead of you. The collection is both bizarre and brilliant, catching the viewer by surprise upon approach. Several of the pieces on display seem delicate and vulnerable, they breath human presence. You can imagine these objects belonging to someone and loveingly cared for in the past, yet they also seem to fit perfectly into an art gallery.

Several of the pieces on display seem delicate and vulnerable, they breathe human presence. You can imagine these objects belonging to someone and lovingly cared for at some time in the past, and yet they also seem to fit perfectly in an art gallery.
