Inside Out: The Private World of Edith Caywood
January 17, 2009 - April 19, 2009
This was the first museum exhibition in Georgia of the artist’s work. The subject matter of her work has been compared with the narratives of Eudora Welty, Flannery O’Connor, and Kate Chopin. Most of her subjects are single figures or small groups of figures set in interiors, which could be interpreted as rooms in old Southern homes or as the internal psychic spaces of a Southern mind. The perspective of the rooms, the postures of the figures, and the relationships of the figures to each other and to their settings hint at concealed emotion and, ultimately, existential isolation.
