Barry Thompson, Paul Winstanley.. 20 January — 14 April 2012.. brings together a group of artists who explore our psychic connectivity to landscape.. The drawings, paintings and prints within the exhibition reveal 'a sense of place' as  ...   reverie of teenage hideouts, suburban housing estates and motorway junctions, each depicted in painstaking detail, are at once familiar yet unnerving for all..

    Descriptive info: 10/09/2010.. David King Paintings and sculpture.. Cross Gallery, 59 Francis St, Dublin.. Until October 2.. David King’s work has undergone a transformation since his last show at the Cross Gallery two years or so ago.. His paintings on that occasion explored notions of the American gothic with views of houses sourced on the internet.. This time, images of any kind, including the gothic, have gone by the board, though there’s still an intimation of something like the internet in what we see in the gallery.. At first glance, it seems as if King has plumped wholeheartedly for abstraction.. He’s made a series of paintings, each dominated by one or  ...   of the computer or gaming monitor.. Rather than being abstract, minimalist objects, they seem to represent the infinity of imagery residing in the virtual reality of an online world.. It’s as if the sum of masses of images cancels out the possibility of settling on any single image.. King frames his compositions with sharp bands of colour, often including a vivid, electric yellow, and there is a similar, vibrant charge to the main body of the paintings, which fizz with luminescent energy.. The undulating lines of three accompanying painted steel sculptures complement this suggestion of seething, inherent energy.. It’s a striking show.. Aidan Dunne, Irish Times, September 10, 2010..

    Descriptive info: 19/05/2010.. AIDAN DUNNE.. VISUAL ARTS: Americanaire, The Urban in The Rural.. Graham Crowley and Colin Martin, Cross Gallery, 59 Francis St Until May 29 01-473 8978.. MARK ST JOHN Ellis curates the two-person show Americanaire, The Urban in The Rural at the Cross Gallery, and the starting point was a remark by a visitor from mainland Europe, suggesting that new houses in rural Ireland resemble suburban American dwellings, and look distinctly uncomfortable in the countryside.. St John Ellis did not set out to illustrate this proposition, though one could certainly do so without too much trouble.. Rather he looked at work by two artists with experience of painting settings urban and rural in Ireland and elsewhere, and lets us draw our own conclusions.. Though English by birth, Graham Crowley now lives for much of the time in rural west Cork.. The paintings he shows feature locations on both sides of the Irish Sea and they feature both the urban in the rural and the opposite: views of high rise housing developments soar above a luxuriant woodland canopy in London.. It’s a case of the concentrated urbanism of the high rises allowing leeway for extensive planting.. Parkland imports a little bit of the countryside to the city..  ...   sorts of visual sources and ideas, and synthesise them all brilliantly in the language of painting.. Colin Martin’s paintings are crisply made and close to photographic on several levels.. He zeroes in on pieces of residential streetscapes in what looks like a West Coast American city.. Rather than going for the salubrious suburbs with generous planting and a quasi-rural feeling, though, he is downtown.. There’s a curiously provisional, improvisational feeling to the way the houses are put together from light wood and sheet materials, as though they are very temporary structures that could disappear tomorrow.. The neighbourhoods are laid out in a grid pattern but the buildings are not uniform, they’re customised according to the whims of their occupants.. Martin depicts these buildings and places in a calm, dispassionate way.. We see cars but not people.. The mood recalls that of some American documentary photography, notably Stephen Shore’s Uncommon Places, a highly influential photographic exploration of everyday America, more or less in the form of a road trip, originally published as a book by Aperture in 1982.. Martin is technically very good, and it’s pleasing to see the way he uses paint precisely and fluently, but there is something unresolved about his work’s relationship to photography..

    Descriptive info: 26/02/2010.. DREAMINESS IS characteristic of Claire Carpenter’s paintings at the Cross Gallery as well.. They are small in scale and made with thin layers of tempera on gesso.. Images emerge from successive washes of colour, often applied very freely, so that it seems they might dissolve completely in waves of pigment.. Yet they don’t, because Carpenter likes to pin her images down in an almost photographic way – that is, despite the free brushwork, with a few notable exceptions, there’s not much expressive distortion when she actually zeroes in on representational content.. In terms of visual description she mostly retains her objectivity.. Taken collectively, her work suggests something like a dream diary, though the show’s accompanying note, describing it as “fantasy and recollection”, also seems reasonable.. An air of mystery pervades as we glimpse scenes involving figures in different interior and exterior settings.. Murder at Swan Lake , as the title implies, features a ballet scene, overwritten by violent scratches..  ...   graduate from NCAD, Burns makes clotted, densely worked little compositions, stocked with references that are for the most part self explanatory.. If memory serves, his student work inclined towards inventively re-stating iconic images and figures.. Here too he revisits subjects including “myths, Biblical stories, art historical, literary and musical themes”.. The show’s title comes from Hieronymous Bosch, evoking the idea of a traveler in search of something undefined.. While the paintings are almost sculptural in the rugged density of their textures, Burns has a light touch.. His Young tiger hunting wildfowl is a case in point, a radiant fantasy that has a touch of magic about it.. While the admission of doubt in Little bird (probably more like a duck) is very likeable.. He simplifies images in a cartoonish way, but not at all awkwardly.. There’s real elegance to what he does, just as his inclination towards heightened colour doesn’t contradict the fact that he has really good colour sense..

    Descriptive info: 21/01/2010.. Apart from his work as a contemporary art curator with wide tastes and a flair for finding innovative work, Mark St John Ellis has long been involved in a musical project, Elijah’s Mantle, as composer and performer.. While Elijah’s Mantle’s music certainly comes under the heading of gothic in several respects, it is also experimental, incorporating ambient and electronic elements.. One composition, Observations of an Atheist , is at the heart not only of the installation in nag, the basement space it occupies in the Cross Gallery, but also of a group show St John Ellis has curated upstairs in the main gallery space, all colours black (two).. The title of the group show is a good indicator of the gothic tendency underlying the enterprise but, again, like the music, the end result is anything but formulaic and predictable.. It encompasses, for example, a series of really beautiful line drawings in ink by Jane Proctor, meditative considerations of the square format, made on  ...   of ingenious touches, one of them a centrally positioned button, which immediately makes us question the nature of the surface.. The biggest piece is by John Beattie, an atmospheric expanse of tonal washes from black to white.. It’s actually the floor and a section of wall from the artist’s workspace, systematically painted during the course of an installation, and it works very well as a painting.. Dee McDonnell’s flair for finding unsettling aspects in workaday utensils is on display in her piece Into the stillness beyond.. Add Seamus O’Rourke’s dark ink paintings and Tom O’Dea’s cleverly distorted picture frame and you have a substantial, consistently engrossing exhibition.. Add the soundtrack music audible from the basement below and it all seems of a piece.. The film itself, the order of its sequences changing indefinitely, is inspired by the dark moody spaces and heightened drama of Caravaggio’s paintings, juxtaposing human flesh and lavish displays of fruit and foodstuffs..

    Descriptive info: 21/10/2009.. BRIDGET FLANNERY, whose work can be seen at the Cross Gallery, is a painter with a considerable track record.. While you could, as Brian Fallon once observed, describe her as a landscape painter, it is more accurate to say she’s a painter of nature.. Her paintings emerge from her engagement with the landscape in the widest sense: the character of place and her experience of it; feelings of belonging or not belonging; memories and reflections.. The pictures develop a visual language that owes much to abstraction.. Their nuanced surfaces recall natural textures, atmospheric subtleties; they are internally consistent, but they are not conventionally representational.. In the past she built up nuanced tonalities with collaged layers of paper saturated with pigment.. There was a compressed energy to her compositions, with approximately right-angled blocks of colour arranged in ways that recalled the horizon line.. She still likes squarish forms, though her compositional dynamics have developed notably and her use of colour and texture have become increasingly mature and assured.. Her show, which draws on two years’ work, is exceptionally rich and concentrated.. In a series of small pieces she cuts into and distorts the surface, bending and curving it in various ways.. There is a risk attendant on introducing such a device: that the novelty becomes the main point and is little more than an alibi for the painting that isn’t there.. But Flannery doesn’t get distracted by novelty.. We never feel that the incisions and distortions  ...   is a solo show by Gabhann Dunne.. He is an energetic young painter who marries a vigorous representational approach to elaborate conceptual schemes.. The title of his show is taken from a book by pioneering environmentalist Henry Beston, originally published in the late 1920s and based on time spent in his small, remote beach house.. at Cape Cod.. Dunne’s concern in his paintings is our relationship with the other species with whom we share the planet.. In one case, in fact, he transports a population of penguins to the moon, from where, massed on the surface, they look back at the earth.. Generally the drama is ratcheted up to something like that degree.. Elephants wander on railway lines; a pack of dogs “make a flag” outside the UN Building in New York; and workers look as if they’re engaged in placing imitation plastic wolves throughout Yellowstone Park.. It’s an ambitious show and Dunne delivers his images with engaging theatrical flair.. Not surprisingly, his images have a composite look about them, as though various sources have been collaged with Photoshop.. A certain coolness and detachment prevents his treatment of a highly charged subject matter from getting too emotional, though his treatment of colour is perhaps a bit overheated.. He will, incidentally, be talking about his work in the gallery tomorrow at 1pm.. New Paintings by Bridget Flannery; plus, in nag, Gabhann Dunne’s The Outermost House.. Cross Gallery, Until Oct 31.. Aidan Dunne, Irish Times, 21 October 2009..

    Descriptive info: 04/07/2009.. "The terrible thing about the quest for truth," said Remy de Gourmont, the 19th-century French writer, "is that you find it.. " Preoccupied by the usual Romantic stew of sex, death and religious ecstasy, de Gourmont nevertheless hinted at the blank ennui of modernity - and a similar tension exists in this show of drawings by Ida Mitrani, Kate Street and Kieran Moore, the title of  ...   the perverse in nature - the mushroom, with it's fleshy connotations, featuring in Mitrani's sophisticated, spidery works.. Street, meanwhile, indulges in a more overt idea of the connectedness of nature, where orchids, recalling sexual organs, grow out of cross sections of human forms.. Moore, his subjects mostly naked from the waist down, lets the idea of sexual indelicacy hang out.. Kate Butler, The Sunday Times, 28th June, 2009..

    Descriptive info: 23/06/2009.. Cross Gallery, 59 Francis St, Dublin Until Jul 4 01-4738978.. At the Ashford Gallery for the past number of years, Mark St John Ellis played a vital role in the Irish art scene, providing a large number of artists with an exhibitions platform early in their careers.. That all important intermediate stage, between studies, perhaps, and involvement with a mainstream commercial gallery, had been largely neglected.. St John Ellis not only managed to do it but brought real flair to the task.. Although he was not exclusively guided by it  ...   is to the fore in his latest venture, Angels of Perversity, which he has curated at the Cross Gallery.. The drawings by the three participating artists have in common “a confusion of reality with the dream with a sexual atmosphere, a modern gothic”.. The show also marks the inauguration of the Cross’s new basement space, nag, which St John Ellis will programme.. To begin with, he’s showing small to medium-sized paintings by some 16 artists, including Ann Quinn, Claire Carpenter, Simon English and Claire Kerr, at very reasonable prices.. Worth checking out..
