Burren College of Art warmly welcomes you to the opening reception for I Trust the Quiet - an exhibition of new work by Cecilia Danell - on Thursday, October 28 from 6-8pm with an Artist's Conversation with gallerist, Kevin Kavanagh, at 7pm.
The title ‘I Trust the Quiet’ was chosen to reflect a time of introspection and enforced solitude, where quietness has resulted in a focused engagement with painting, while the depicted winter landscape has come to represent that sense of stillness. The parallel reading of classic sci-fi and speculative fiction novels have also inspired this recent work, as what strikes her about these novels is humanity’s ability to persevere and adapt in adverse circumstances. The human urge to find solace in a primeval landscape grows increasingly stronger amidst the uncertainty of our current condition. Yet wilderness is for the most part a construct and the places she depicts are managed forest landscapes.
