In Adult Lullabies, Clare Longley explores the kind of romantic idealism you project on to falling in love or walks along the beach during sunset. Assembling a series of visual motifs distinct to her practice, the paintings are innocent, sketchy, and incomplete in parts, like a memory or something intangible. Completely immersed in the atmosphere of seduction, but with a sprinkle of failure, the paintings allude to first kisses, butterflies in your stomach and beach house décor.
