Aftermath.. tattoo.. memory ascending.. last post.. Artist Name.. Michael Wann.. Exhibition Title.. we seek another place to rest.. Exhibition Dates.. 04/07/2011.. -.. 02/08/2011.. Press Release.. Michael Wann.. ‘we seek another place to rest’.. 7th July – 30th July.. Michael Wann is a Dublin born artist based for the last 23 years in Sligo.. ‘we seek another place to rest’ is his first solo show with the Cross Gallery.. This body of beautifully executed studies are meticulously observed remnants of  ...   field, a derelict habitat, a forgotten or neglected interior.. Wann allows the flawed elements of mark-making, the drip and smudge and simple dirt of his medium, to form an intrinsic part of the process, giving each finished work an honesty and a narrative that adds layers to his story.. Wann’s skill as a draftsman is not only his ability to engage us in a dialogue with the transience of captured moments, of melancholy introspection or of vague but enduring optimism; his work also serves to remind us of the powerful medium of drawing itself..

    Descriptive info: Where did this day go.. the wracking of blessings.. Snow all gone again.. Could scale higher still.. There is something going on in the garden..

Ann Quinn.. she would argue a crow is white.. 02/06/2011.. Ann Quinn.. she would argue a crow is white.. Preview Thursday June 9, 2011.. Exhibition continues until July 2, 2011.. This new body of work is based on time spent at a one month artist residency Ann Quinn undertook in the Pyrenees, Catalonia in November 2010 ; a residency at the Heinrich Boll Cottage in Achill Island in 2010, and the time of the heavy snow at her childhood home in East Donegal, 2010.. Using oils, acrylics and inks Ann has built up layers on gesso, linen, board and canvas to incorporate primitive childhood visions of an imaginary landscape into memories of these three locations using photographs.. She aims to  ...   of her work.. "For the first few years of my life I could see in the dark after my mother put me to bed.. When the light was switched off gravity would pull me upside down and the darkness around me became endless valleys of mountains, lakes and grey scattered stones below me.. It was like looking through a film negative only holding the negative up to darkness instead of up to light.. The details of this vast endless landscape was tainted with a dirty green against black.. I moved with my eyes.. I was soaring high above it all at a high speed.. By turning my eyes I could will myself to move right or move left, dip down onto lakes then soar quickly back up again.. I would feel dizzy from it all but was never afraid.. Every night the same world was there again waiting for me.. As an adult I look into the darkness but all I see around me is black night.. " Ann Quinn..

Arbor II.. John Boyd.. Blue.. 30/04/2011.. John Boyd.. Blue.. Preview Thursday May 5 2011.. Exhibition continues until May 28 2011.. Repetition in music, often described as sequential, has its origins in the desire for sacred harmony or striving towards spiritual ecstasy.. Physically this became manifested by such groups as the Shakers of New England in the late seventeen hundreds and the Dervishes who whirled.. Rock music has achieved this with its audiences who respond by the aggressive shaking of a head.. Visually, artists have pursued the same euphoria by the obsessive repetition of a gesture made by whatever medium comes to hand.. This has tended to be observed in the form of an abstraction.. To discover an artist who does this in figurative painting is quite unique.. The paintings of John Boyd are of a person, a man, although in previous works this figure has also been seen as a woman and a child.. Because of the repetition of this  ...   extraordinary thing about John Boyd's paintings is that he has refuted that criticism by exactly doing that but with a freshness and excitement generally attributed to a much younger creator.. These paintings are of this figure.. To add to the bizarre the figure sometimes wears a mask that almost appears to be the same one, but when looking at the previous work in the series there is a slight variation.. The figure is sometimes next to a tree, if a tree could be simply that in a John Boyd painting, sometimes in and literally in, a landscape and sometimes looking out intently to the left wearing a mask that does the adjective of looking.. All have a particular blue background and all are framed in a particular way.. Has John not found what he is trying to say with this figure or is it that in fact he has and the pleasure is its' company.. The obsessive repetition is to demonstrate just what pleasure and harmony this gives to him as the artist and to those viewers who understand what and why he is doing it..

Airport Hotel.. Simon English.. Nothing lasts forever.. 02/04/2011.. New Paintings.. by.. Simon English.. Preview Thursday 7 April, 6pm – 8pm.. Exhibition continues until Saturday 30 April, 2011.. The fragmentary images in this series refer to disjointed recollections, a sort of “metaphorical tinnitus” caused by involuntary memory, which places the viewer as an observer of a succession of discontinuous scenes or events that lack clarity and are ambiguous.. The locations described are in a state  ...   frame in which the events occur is indeterminate.. These ambiguous elements seek to cause an existential remoteness to be suggested, allowing the viewer freedom to traverse this landscape guided by the works ambiguities and their own parameters and judgments.. Born in England, Simon English studied at Crawford College of Art and Liverpool College of Art.. He has exhibited extensively, both here and abroad.. His work can be found in many public and private collections including AIB, Bank of Montreal, Cork County Council, Irish Museum of Modern Art, Office of Public Works, University College Cork and University of Limerick..

Two Academy members discussing what is the correct procedure to execute a drawing.. One Academy member states it is only by a graphite pencil line, the other Academy member argues the line can be drawn by a  ...   and has therefore been regarded as secondary in place; thought of as the beginning of the development process.. It could be argued that the twentieth century changed that when artists used drawing on a far larger scale with a whole range of mediums.. The drawings carved into the rock surfaces of sites dating five thousand years ago could question that statement.. This exhibition will engage with the subject by exhibiting works that demonstrate the diversity and the debate on what drawing is.. This will range from the endorsement of the traditional by an Academy, alongside drawing driven by a more conceptual contemporary art practice and all that lies between the pencil and the plough..

Cara Thorpe.. Preview Thursday 10th February, 6pm – 8pm.. Exhibition continues until Saturday 5th March 2011.. In this series of much awaited paintings by Cara Thorpe, she continues to explore the work through the use of textures, mark-making, and overlaying of printed images.. The process is one of repetitively layered  ...   preserved and allowed a residual presence.. Cara plays with compositions from an archive of images such as abandoned buildings, forests, outer-space, mountain and snow scenes.. These images are juxtaposed to create hauntingly distressed landscapes.. Many of the environments are solitary places that seem to rest on the threshold of memory, occupied by shadows of people passing through, wandering or lost.. Places half imagined yet strangely familiar, of another world..

'An Elsewhere World'.. 04/01/2011.. New Paintings - ‘An Elsewhere World’.. Mary Rose Binchy.. Preview Thursday 13th January 2011.. Exhibition continues until Saturday 5th February 2011.. Haiku is a Japanese three part poem of usually seventeen syllables.. The new paintings of Mary Rose Binchy trace the visual journey of  ...   shells, sky, sea, and mountains.. They are abstractions of a real world.. They describe nature with a minimal amount of expression in paint.. Poetry, which influences the artist, describes a scene or emotion in a similar fashion by being sparing with the words it uses.. In this way a non Western approach is taken by the artist in describing the natural world and its simple glories of colour and texture.. ‘I had my existence.. I was there.. Me in place and the place in me.. Where can it be found again,.. An elsewhere world, beyond.. Maps and atlases,.. Where all is woven into.. And of itself, like a nest.. Of crosshatched grass blades?’.. From ‘A Herbal’, translated from the French of Eugene Guillevic,.. By Seamus Heaney.. Human Chain, 2010..

    Descriptive info: In The Head IV.. In The Head II.. In the Head I.. In the Head.. 30/10/2010.. 27/11/2010.. In the Head.. Clea Van Der Grijn.. Preview Thursday 4th November 2010.. Exhibition continues until Saturday 27th November 2010.. After Cléa Van Der Grijn's exhibition 'Moment(ous)' in 2008, which was a raw photographic installation on death, it took her months to reconnect with her work and return to the physical act of painting.. As an ongoing sufferer of migraines Cléa was invited by the Science Museum to make a piece based on this illness which became the catalyst of a body of  ...   and gold, demonstrating the intensity of the experience.. In time, the comfort of repetition – an ongoing element of her work – led to the large canvases as a suitable area for the huge amounts of physical energy that the painting, layering, pouring and sanding back (with an industrial sander) were to take, balanced with the methodical placing of the dots.. This action became a representation of memory, order and time.. These were caught moments which were then, symbolically, brutally sanded back.. The process was repeated over and over till the artist felt her story (in the head) was told..

    Descriptive info: Through The Gates of the Silver Key.. The Willows.. The Best Years of our Lives.. The Beadlet Anenome.. Follow Me.. 19.. Kieran Moore.. Everybody needs a Country Lover.. 02/10/2010.. Everybody needs a Country Lover.. Kieran Moore.. Preview Thursday 7 October 2010.. Exhibition continues until 30 October 2010.. ‘Country Lover’ was the name of a shampoo from the early 1970’s.. The name of this exhibition was the company’s slogan.. Kieran Moore's main sources of inspiration are to be found in the late 1960’s and early 1970’s: the camp of Glam rock, the suburban paganism of self-styled ‘King of the Witches’ Alex Sanders, the far out mélange of gender confusion and Aquarian age excess of Russ Meyer’s ‘Beyond the Valley of the Dolls’,  ...   of this panel; some say it represents a fall from grace, a catalogue of depravities and a warning to those who pursue the pleasures of the flesh in this lifetime.. It may have something to do with these things but to the artist it is a joyous paean to the possibilities of the curious mind.. Kieran's own gods straddle the margins of medieval folklore and a transgressive dress sense part inspired by the sleeve of David Bowie’s The Man Who Sold the World (1970).. There is a sense of something being awry, not quite right, not quite covered and where it is not quite covered surprises the viewer that it is either a pre-adolescent male or a shaved adult of feminine features..

Yellow Red on Blue Silver.. Red on Double Blue.. Blue on Double Orange.. David King.. 31/08/2010.. 9th September – 2nd October 2010.. The new paintings by David King take on a contemporary attitude of respect and acknowledgement to the history of art.. The layering of each painting is an archive of past and present, from 15th century Italian painting methods (Chiaroscuro & Sfumato – brush and traditional arrangements) to the 20th century means of execution.. Two directional motions are explored in all the paintings.. Brushing horizontally side to side – back and forth and vertically up and down, all subtly leaving traces of layer  ...   spectatorial engagement is personified in the Arc series, where the surface of the painting is no longer on the front or even the back but all around.. The gallery wall becomes just as intrinsic as the piece itself.. The glowing pigment on the back surface disperses a radiant colour effect onto the gallery wall activating the space and incorporating it as part of the overall piece.. The front of the paintings could read as stellar maps or astronomical diagrams, reflecting King’s interest in Chaos and traditional painting.. The colour modulations of each piece actively show a day to day process of engagement.. It is an emotional investigation, a diary entry on any given day.. In the studio no consideration is given to colour matching or coding, only an emotional response internally felt on the day..
