Many Worlds

Many Worlds - Group show

Paul NugentCentre Culturel Irlandais and Kevin Kavanagh present Many Worlds, a group exhibition of new work by six artists who reflect the diversity of contemporary painters in Ireland. Each have distinct and highly complex ways of fragmenting and reconstructing space through the medium of paint. Diana Copperwhite’s highly energetic and colourfully abstract manner of painting contrasts with Paul Nugent’s measured and monochrome application of paint to meticulously primed boards. Geraldine O Neill’s canvas for Many Worlds marries a Flemish style of painting with contemporary subject matter. Tadhg McSweeney’s kinetic assemblage charts a restructuring of space using revolving mechanisms to create ever-changing images of light and shadow. Kathy Tynan’s works are made following encounters and epiphanies on routine walks and journeys while Paul McKinley seeks out photographs of far-away countries that he has never visited - his paintings are lush and seductive though their subject-matter points to complicated and often suppressed histories of these places.
