For many years Artist Toni Gallagher has pondered the back story of The Old Lady That Swallowed a fly and her curious eating habits, why did she swallow the fly? who was she ? and how exactly do you swallow a cow whole?
The Gluttonous lady that swallowed a fly is the first in a series of shows inspired by the seven deadly sins. This inaugural exhibition explores Gluttony via a collection of mixed media , photographic xrays and sculptures refering to the eponymous lady. A percentage of sales from the show are going to the charity Leuka
, a charity that raises funds to support life- saving research into the causes and treatment of leukaemia and other blood disorders.
Toni Gallagher has had work exhibited at Debut Contemporary Gallery in Notting Hill, an ice sculpture on the Fourth Plinth in London and more recently a showing of her ‘synchronised swimming blowups’ on Charlotte Street in West London. Her new ‘The Gluttonous Lady That Swallowed The Fly’ Exhibition runs from the 9th – 22nd November 2012.
