GALLERISTAS should make plans to see these three EXHIBITIONS …
Four emerging Irish and international artists are the focus of the Kerlin Gallery’s new exhibition, which opens today, Thursday July 6. Hannah Fitz, from Dublin, works predominantly with sculpture, often rendering familiar or domestic objects, with curling lines and uncertain wobbles. Áine McBride, from Co Donegal, describes her work as “decidedly not grand, not sensational and at times almost banal.” Her sculptures reference domestic, urban and commercial motifs and imagery. The paintings of Daniel Rios Rodriguez, from Texas, provide an abstract version of the artist’s personal experiences, and filter still life, landscape and memento mori through the lens of American folk art. Marcel Vidal, from Dublin, works with painting and sculpture, using manipulated or obscured imagery to create an atmosphere of unease.

Five renowned contemporary artists are exhibiting at The Mill in Kinsale. The featured artists – Vivienne Roche, Charles Tyrrell, Katherine Boucher Beug, Stefan Syrowatka and Sarah O’Flaherty – use painting, drawing, photography, and sculpture to create an engaging visual landscape. Take Five at The Mill is free to the public and runs until July 21 at The Old Mill on Church Square in the heart of historic Kinsale.
Travelling without Moving runs from July 6 – 8, and brings together large and small format paintings by Colm Mac Athlaoich in which abstract scenes are loosely formed by the suggestion of foliage and puddles, grids or prop-like objects and curtains. The work is divided into two bodies, one created in Dublin and another while on residency in Cyprus. There is visual coherence to the overall group of paintings and prints on view, both in their similar palettes as well as in recurring motifs and the integration of organic and non-organic forms. Mac Athlaoich is interested in the painting process as a mobiliser of ideas and action. The title of the exhibition suggests the act of recalling memories, visual reference points, and the mental photograph, which are all tools in Mac Athlaoich’s creative process.
