Western, European painting from the 14th to 19th centuries serves the Irish painter Mary A. Waters as the starting point for her pictorial world. These paintings, mostly firmly rooted in art and cultural history, serve as witnesses and prophets of cultural values. The artist adapts the visual worlds, but looks at them from a different perspective. In the context of colonization and cultural and political superiority, the artist pushes traditional ideas of history, values and culture into a different light.
