‘’Untitled’ A Conversation in Time’’
Opening Friday Sept 1st 7.30pm.
Running until Saturday Sept 23rd.
Opening at Solas Gallery Ballinamore on Friday Sept 1st is “Untitled, A conversation in time” A solo show by local Ballinamore multimedia artist Brendan Dean.
The show title is a contradiction in itself as the work explores the balancing of contrasts in our daily lives.
The work created over the last two and a half years is a mixture of mostly paintings with some paper-mache sculpture and other bits and bobs and is both colourful and intriguing. Most of the work is abstract which Brendan has always preferred to work with, though he manages figurative work very well. He feels that abstraction helps the viewer to focus on an emotional response...Heart over mind so to speak.
''My ability to play like a child is what I aim for more and more while making work, this allows my subconscious to speak through the work and that I feel conveys something we all can relate to and often perhaps deny in our daily lives”
The exhibition opens on Friday 1st September at 7.30pm and runs until Saturday 23rd September.
