Olha Prymakk: Tea Tasting Ritual
Sunday 4 September 4pm
Herrick Gallery hosted special herbal tea tasting ritual with the artist Olha Pryymak on Sunday 4th September. Olha combines figurative painting and folk remedies to evoke healing and transformation. The tea ritual and related paintings originate from a research trip to rural Latvia. The performance will involve preparing, brewing, and tasting a selection of aromatic herbs, followed by an artist talk and informal discussion.
Olha’s paintings can be seen at Herrick Gallery, including a recent portrait, painted during several sittings at the gallery, of the extraordinary performance artist Pandemonia.
Olha was born in the Ukraine and lives and works in London.
