Leading Irish artists showing in Cork

Thursday, 9th November, 2017 9:28am

An exhibit showcasing some of the leading names in contemporary Irish art will open on Leeside today.

Running until 2 December, the Lavit Gallery is presenting an exhibition of works by Catherine Barron, Helen Blake, Thomas Brezing, Gabhann Dunne, Vera Klute and Jennifer Trouton. Working with the Molesworth Gallery in Dublin, this exhibition is bringing the six contemporary artists to Cork city.

Jennifer Trouton is drawn to the oft-overlooked banalities of human existence, dignifying the losses that life inflicts. Catherine Barron is showing pieces from her series she showed as an exhibition entitled ‘LP’ as well as her work from ‘We Were Here’.

Helen Blake is a painter whose practice focuses on colour, engaging with rhythm and formalism, chance and deliberation.

Thomas Brezing says that he works against beauty, believing that too much beauty can be a dangerous thing. The limpid colour palette in Gabhann Dunne’s work gives it a visionary quality. Vera Klute’s etchings are of intricate detail that draw you in, while her oil on canvas makes a wonderful fantastic scene from, what on closer inspection, seems to be a view of a kitchen window.
