Charles Tyrrell will present an Artist’s Talk on his painting practice and his current exhibition, ‘Two Paths’, at 1pm on Tuesday 25 October 2016 at Taylor Galleries. Admission is free and no advance booking is required.
The show runs from 14 October to 5 November and brings together two strands of Charles Tyrrell’s work from the past four years: his work on aluminium and more recent 2D/3D timber constructions. Tyrrell has been engaged with aluminium to varying degrees since 2000, and from 2013 to 2015 worked exclusively with the metal. In contrast to his oil-on-aluminium technique his recent wall-mounted timber constructions come from a slower physical engagement. In the early 1980s Tyrrell worked with floorboards salvaged from St. Peter’s Church on Aungier Street in Dublin, prior to its demolition. Still having a quantity of this material in storage he decided to re-visit this arena in late 2015, more than thirty years later, to see what might develop. ‘Two Paths’ is the result.
