Geraldine O’ Neill

Written by Kevin Kavanagh on . Posted in Artists

(b.1971), lives and works in Dublin.

“Every painter recapitulates the history of painting in his or her own way,” wrote Gilles Deleuze in his Francis Bacon study. It is a deceptively simple way of wording a complicated insight about being a painter and the labour it takes to make your practice count.

Gearldine O’Neill works through the history of painting rather like a dancer who goes hill-walking on Everest and discovers a panoramic base camp peopled by artists, scientists and philosophers. It is about time. About space too. Above all, it is about painting from the skin, meaning that technique matters and that craft must be conceptualised before it appears as art.

Mark Swords

Written by Kevin Kavanagh on . Posted in Artists

(b. 1978) lives and works in Co. Wicklow, Ireland

The hand-made aspect of Swords’ work is clearly evident, and together with the materials, forms and use of colour relay a sense of curiosity and workmanship. The works are finely executed, and this curiosity is apparent in the artist’s  self learning and even re-learning through his engagement with materials, such that a piece of work may result from the solving of a self imposed problem. Utilising materials that are often overlooked, including carpet, tent fabric, and string, and without attempting to hide the processes of making, the strength of Swords’ work resides in its fragility and careful informality.
