Fitzgerald presented new work across two locations, The Courthouse Gallery and a disused pub in Ennistymon, where the piece Fossilized Local occupied the bar's snug. Additional work included a 3D welded steel drawing, two dimensional drawings, audio, a new text and a performative talk.

Matthew Mitchell
Legacy

Mitchell describes his work as an attempt to find a visual language for thw duality between our necessarily abstracted experience of place and being in the new digital landscape, and our perception of place and being in relation to the more tangible primeval geological past.

 

His work has been purchased by the OPW, the Law Society of Ireland, and are in corporate and private collections.

Stephen Dunne
Worms In My Head

The exhibition featured a series of recurring motifs related to a mysterious character presented with difficult routes through hills and mountains. Multiple choices and wrong paths. The drawings spin out in myriad directions of allusion, metaphor and technique. Stephen Dunne’s work operates across the registers of painting, drawing, moving image and the investigation of speculative and theoretical fictions.

Conor O’Leary
WALKS 

O'Leary's work has appeared in publications including The New York Times, Fader, The Financial Times and The Telegraph Magazine. He is a regular contributor to Helsingin Sanomat, the largest daily newspaper in the Nordic region.

Here, his subtle informal portraits quietly reflect his subjects, who often look away from the camera.

He says, “being open and honest with strangers enables me to create an intimate moment with someone I have just met”. The exhibition is accompanied by Torino, a limited edition publication.

Sadbh Gaston
Brought To You Despite...

Gaston’s debut solo exhibition brought together pieces that collectively explore the global textile industry and historical food production in Ireland. Using mixed media including screen printing, stitching and embroidery, her approach encompasses careful planning and precise execution. The work scrutinises contemporary and ancient aspects of clothing and food – items that can come and go quickly in our daily lives.
