"As a child, I often stayed at hotels with swimming pools. I’ve always been intrigued by motley crowds and there’s no better place to people watch then a hotel swimming pool" - Violet COSTELLO
"The work [Holiday Inn] shows a strange mixture of people we encounter in open air swimming pools that equally reflects the way people engage with a newborn baby once it is brought home and taken out into the public. At times it seems everyone has a right or ownership of your newborn baby, especially when you become a mother for the first time" - Pauline deSouza, Director of the Diversity Art Forum; judge on the 2020 Mother Art Prize panel
Costello was awarded the ‘Procreate Project – Mother Art Prize Online Award’ for this work from her 'Bringing Home Baby' series, alongside two other paintings: 'Touch Him' and 'Peek Freans' (all 2018).
