Sinéad Ní Mhaonaigh | Deep Mapping: Unseen Landscapes
11 February - 31 March
Solstice Arts Centre, Navan
Opening Reception: Sat 11 February, 2:30pm, all are welcome, no booking required
For her solo exhibition at Solstice Arts Centre, Ní Mhaonaigh presents a series of new paintings that characteristically feature prominent elements of the built environment: vernacular structures, houses, factories, sheds. However, one notes that over time, some of these buildings have been demolished, therefore reframing the durational function of painting as one of recording a landscape in flux. These works portray absent forms in a moment prior to their erasure; however, they also trace the enduring hum of subatomic particles, or the ways in which enigmatic shadows continue to haunt the horizon. Movingly, the artist describes this kind of spatial and temporal dislocation as "working with an ever-present void."
Exploring her artworks on display, join Sinéad in the gallery on Friday 24 February, where she will discuss her methodical painting process, exploration and elaboration of bound space.
