A collection of drawings, prints and paintings from two cultures; India and Ireland
Dates: 12th November - 24th November 2015
Time: 11.30am - 6.00pm Daily
Mahua’s work is a look ‘inwards’. She uses herself in tracings, patterns, writings (scribbles) as some of the tools in her drawings and prints.
One of the key elements of this collection, EARTHED, is the cycle of the seasons, parallel to the inner workings of the mind. The lack of sun in Ireland during the winter months often leave a lasting impression on her, and the works reflect the rebirth from the darkness of hibernation into the warmth and colours of spring, summer and autumn.
Eamonn’s work is forged through engagement with the eclectic particulars of place whether it be Temple Bar (where he has maintained a studio for over 20 years) or Los Angeles (where he spent several months living and painting this year). Eamonn’s book of drawings ‘Temple Bar: 50 Drawings’ will be available for sale at the Centre, during the exhibition.
