1 June – 18 June, 2017
View fresh works from our stable of talented contemporary artists.
Artists include: Deirdre Breen, Stephen Burke, Neil Dunne, Jill & Gill, Leah Hewson, Jordan McQuaid, Shane O’Driscoll, Eoin O’Reilly, The Project Twins, Remi Rough, Signs of Power and Dave White.
Jill & Gill show the last edition of ‘Iris’ from their recent sell out show. A new neon screenprint by Leah Hewson who recently enjoyed a solo show in the RHA, Dublin. To compliment Neil Dunne‘s MA exhibition in NCAD we have selected two exciting new works on linen.
We are exhibiting for the first time screenprints by Remi Rough, whose powerful work explores associations between graffiti, abstract expressionism and suprematist concepts. The bold graphic work by The Project Twins look at identity and absurdity with a wit that is both melancholic and humorous. We will also showcase a new piece by the very talented Signs of Power whose work celebrates the craftsmanship and tradition of hand painted signs, but imbues them with a contemporary edge.
Shane O’Driscoll‘s abstract neon compositions expertly translate his work on walls onto paper through screenprint, reducing his subject matter to a minimal state. Deirdre Breen‘s work for the show is from her celestial series, using bold forms and geometry to represent astronomical events. Jordan McQuaid‘s beautiful Ballinskellig Landscape II demonstrates the variety and depth that can be achieved with screen printing and finished with hand varnishing. Stephen Burke showcases his vibrant and striking polyurethane and oil on aluminium paintings, the subject deriving from graffiti removals around Dublin. Eoin O’Reilly‘s aluminium plate aquatints show the passing of time as it is recorded in the plate and these moments build up to form a strata of experience.
We first featured Dave White in our COLLECTOR exhibition and are delighted to be showing him again, the use of diamond dust in his work enhances the exquisite draftmanship on display.
