Dizzy Pragnell’s work is a curious interpretation of seemingly everyday ingredients encouraging the viewer to look with fresh eyes at the familiar. Her vegetable and fruit papyrus explores the role played by the ingredients, as symbols of reproductive nature, which give man foods essential for survival.
The work is principally an exploration of structure, form and tone based on reality. Nature provides the living material, which is the starting point. It examines the issues concerning the shared consumption of food and the memory this creates, freely bridging the idioms of abstraction and representation by using everyday ingredients such as fruits and vegetables.
Dizzy Pragnell has exhibited internationally and across the United Kingdom, including at the Royal Academy. Her work is also included in a number of museum collections.
