What’s with the Apocalypse? | Paul Mosse at VISUAL, Carlow

16 September to 12 January

What’s with the Apocalypse? looks back over 40 years of practice. It shows the importance of drawing, nature and the surrounding landscape on the development of Mosse’s work, and also reveals the importance of materials and the physical intelligence of his making; a responsive and instinctual process of finding and re purposing raw materials from the detritus of the everyday world that surrounds him. Throughout Mosse’s work themes of complexity; chaos and order; and surface and interior recur, as materials are layered, pierced, torn, peeled – and occasionally even shot.

What’s with the Apocalypse? traces the trajectory of Mosse’s journey as an artist over four decades, from initial responses to the external influences of nature, to the development of a darker and more complex internal vision, explored through his extraordinary approach to materials.

Paul Mosse was born in 1946 in Bennettsbridge, Co. Kilkenny. He was elected to Aosdana in 2007 and his works are included in many private and public collections, including Allied Irish Bank, the Irish Museum of Modern Art, Trinity College Dublin, Crawford Municipal Gallery, Cork, the National Self-Portrait Collection and the
Office of Public Works.
