ARTISTS: Paul MacCormaic and Una Gildea
A double solo show of 24 2-d small scale works consisting of paintings drawings and collage.
Theme: Familiar is about how the impact of the mass media and social networks have changed the meaning of Familiar and what it is to know somebody. Following celebrity culture and taking images from advertising where the viewer is a global family of images blurs the notion of close friends and family. Una Gildea tackles the idea with a series of intimate portraits completed in a colourful naive style where real family are mixed up with celebrities. Mac Cormaic uses advertising imagery and packaging that comes into the home to become ubiquitous and familiar.
SPACE: This will fit into a small area, Ideally 4 x 5 meters.
OUTREACH: none in place but both artists are keen to talk and do workshops.
Artists Fees required: In keeping with VAI policy, an artist’s fee is required
