Inscriptions

2000

Inspired by the dramatic landscape of County Mayo, Ireland, paintings and drawings from the Inscriptions series explore the relationship between line and space. Line is the main visual tool of expression, serving as a metaphorical symbol of time that traces the history layered within each piece. It disguises and reveals the image through a process similar to excavation. It also reflects the tangling and untangling of an imaginative web of memories, experiences and events. Inscriptions: Painting The Line Touring Exhibition in UK & Ireland was curated by Reyahn King, Birmingham Museums and Art Gallery. In 2001-2002 the Inscriptions exhibition travelled to James Hockey Gallery, Surrey Institute of Art & Design, Farnham; Aston Hall, Birmingham Museums & Art Gallery; Stanley Picker Gallery, Kingston University, Kingston-upon-Thames; UK; Model Arts and Niland Gallery, Sligo, Linenhall Arts Centre, Castlebar and Courthouse Gallery, Ballinglen Arts Foundation, Ballycastle, Co. Mayo, Ireland
