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

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.
