If you've been following my Twitter you'll have heard that I'm getting excited about an upcoming exhibition showing some of my photos. Its called 6 Perspectives on Light and is exactly what it says on the tin. Six artists are showing work exploring the imagery of light and shade. The artists are Roseanne Lynch, Padraig Spillane, Ciara O'Flynn, Lucey Clarke, Eimear Tunney and Miriam King (I'm going to blow my cover and tell you that's me! Miriam is my real life name.) And its curated by the artist Gráinne Galvin. For any of you that might be in Cork, its on in the Greenroom Gallery, Cork Arts Theatre from Thursay 18th June to Thursday 2nd July 2009. And you're all invited to the opening at 7pm on Thursday 18th, I'd love to see you there.
Now about the exhibition itself - its an exhibition of photography, drawing and painting. Traditionally light has been conceived of as an agent that penetrates, illuminates and purges. The artists use subtle interpretations, geometric representations and organic imagery to convey large and obscure areas of light and shade. They seek to examine the edges upon which light runs, the surfaces on which it falls and the materials it pierces.
Later in the week I'll give you a sneak peek of some of my work and tell you the story behind it. But for now put 7pm Thursday 18th June into your diary and I'll see you there!
