Omega Workshop: An Experiment in Counter-Fashion
January 26 – March 10, 2018

Elizabeth Foundation of the Arts,
323 W. 39th St., 2nd Floor

Elaine Byrne will take part in a project alongside Carmen Argote, Nick Cave, Sky Cubacub, Frau Fiber, Friends of Light, Abigail Glaum-Lathbury, Ruby Hoette, Project KOVR, Fawn Krieger, Jennifer Moon, Marloes ten Bhömer, Marisa Williamson, Andrea Zittel.

Opening Reception: Friday, January 26, 6 – 8 PM

Curated by: Rational Dress Society

Since the birth of fashion in the 19th century, counter-fashion—the practice of dressing to signal political solidarity—has been a site for critical intervention and utopian experimentation amongst activists, artists, and designers. Fashion is often mobilized to effect political change in moments of unrest. Omega, the last letter of the Greek alphabet, continues this tradition, suggesting clothing for “end times.” In Omega Workshop, our clothes are reconceived as an act of resistance in dark times—a collective reimagining of our relationship to dress.

For Omega Workshop, the members of the Rational Dress Society bring together artists, designers and activists who mobilize the language of clothing to critique the existing fashion system and offer alternatives. The exhibition will function as an archive and a laboratory, intended both as a tool to spur the production of future counter-fashion, and a resource for artists and designers interested in pursuing alternative dress. The run of Omega Workshop coincides with New York Fashion Week, offering a necessary counterpoint to the consumer-driven spectacle of the fast fashion in New York’s historical (and diminishing) Garment District.

Primed Vision | Stephanie Deady | 11.01-10.02.2018

Written by Ingrid Lyons on . Posted in Exhibitions, Uncategorized

Stephanie Deady

Primed Vision

January 11th – February 10th, 2018

Opening reception January 11th at 6pm.

Stephanie Deady works from photographs, found images and from memory to create paintings of her surroundings, both experienced and recalled. On wooden panels, the paintings depict part of Deady’s studio, the counter top in the kitchen of a friend’s house and the corner of a living room in Italy, among other alcoves. Within these compositions small and precise brush strokes present austere and pared back scenes. To counter this, other paintings present landscapes and interiors, fragmented by gestural brushstrokes. Deady often focuses on one image and through close observation; she presents various iterations of the same space. In this way, subtle changes in the representation of the space become apparent. Minor adjustments to the perspective and horizon allude to a concern and curiosity with how a place is transformed in its representation.

There is a sense of transience and solitude, as traces of figures and furniture appear to populate the compositions momentarily. Three panels show a studio space in differing stages of use. Each presents evidence of artistic activities, though the architecture remains the emphatic focus. Viewed together, the panels become a sequence-an archive of evolving spaces. They are deceptively simple looking and in sequence they move incrementally towards abstraction. Though areas of the compositions often reveal an intense dedication to the depiction of incidental detail within the architecture. Such nuance in the rendering of light fixtures, pipes and skirting boards reveals a preoccupation with precision and an almost ascetic approach to the final touches that complete the paintings.

Deady has a way of imbuing blank spaces, whitewashed walls, ceilings and floors with texture and atmosphere. The paintings contain a kind of warmth that belies their colour palette as well as their, often frugal, composition. Regardless of the objects and figures that may appear fleetingly, there is a reassuring presence within the spaces that provides a constant.

X X V I

The props assist the house
Until the house is built,
And then the props withdraw –
And adequate, erect,
The house supports itself;
Ceasing to recollect
The auger and the carpenter.
Just such a retrospect
Hath the perfect life,
A past of plank and nail,
And slowness, – then the scaffolds drop­ –
Affirming it a soul.

-Emily Dickinson

 

Stephanie Deady (b.1990) Limerick, graduated with a BA Honours in Fine Art specialising in painting from Limerick School of Art & Design in 2014.

Emergence

Claremorris Gallery, Co. Mayo

30th September – 14th October 2017

A solo show, Emergenceby Margaret Corcoran will open Saturday September 30th at 7.30pm. The show will run until October 14th during gallery hours, 1 – 6pm, Weds – Sat, after which the show can be viewed by appointment until October 14th.

“We see the past in terms of representational strategies used to describe it. This idea has been integral to the rationale of Margaret Corcoran’s work. Her paintings have revisited historical eras with the aim of illuminating the world views implicit in the images and the ways they were constructed, generally with particular regard to the role of women, of looking, of seeing and making. Her engagement has been broadly critical and analytical”

– Aidan Dunne, Irish Times, 2009

Sonia Shiel

Written by Ingrid Lyons on . Posted in News, Uncategorized

Sonia Shiel at The Crawford Art Gallery, Cork

9th September – 28th October, 2017

Sonia Shiel’s exhibition Rectangle, squared. invites the viewer into a series of performative spaces, where-in the action is painted, built, written, presented, intimated or provoked in chapters titled by shape and interspersed with props, some still, some moving. The exhibition tells the story of a fictional artist’s surreal encounters with the illusory world she finds herself in, and the tremendous challenges it throws her. Shiel’s work contemplates the mundane drama of living, in a series of large scale works that appear to be peripatetic but are connected through their surreal narrative imagery. Bold, yet enigmatic, Shiel’s works conjures theatrical connotations both through their life-size scale, and in their staged scenarios which allow us to interrogate, dream and hold empathy with the characters portrayed by the artist.
