Eye of the storm: Siobhan McDonald Publication & Discussion launch night
Starting from 28th Jun 2012, (Thursday) from 19:00 – 21:00. A solo exhibition at Galway Arts Centre.
Siobhan McDonald is a visual artist working with paint, sound, photography and drawing. Her recording of the earth’s rhythms and its ephemeral occurrences explores patterns in nature and reveals realities that are otherwise invisible to the naked eye. Recent pieces develop her preoccupation with transformation in manifestations of the explosive, like volcanoes, and the gradual, like the passage of icebergs.
Titled ‘Eye of the storm’ the work explores the idea of studying ‘nature.’ McDonald employs geology as a language to conceive an understanding of time and our relationship to a constantly evolving environment, juxtaposing new artworks in poetic relation with historical and geological artefacts.
The new series of work have been triggered by the eruptive nature of the Icelandic volcano, Eyjafjallajokull since 2010.
Publication and discussion by Katherine Waugh: On the exhibition, a publication is published with the full text by Tim Robinson. Talk in the Gallery on Thursday 28th June at 7pm and the publication will be launched, in relation to this Solo exhibiton.
Curated by Aoife Tunney
Exhibition runs until 9th of July.
