a consequence of – a breather of air is a solo exhibition by Maud Cotter which takes place in the three galleries at The Dock. It is the second iteration of a body of work developed through three leading venues over three years; The Limerick City Gallery of Art, in 2018, The Dock, 2019, and Dublin City Gallery, The Hugh Lane in 2020.
This work affirms the mercurial landscape of the mind, and the gallery as a place where matter and consciousness mingle. Cotter’s work plays with scale and balance, modular and generative form through the precariousness of the familiar. She references an imperfect geometry, a randomness within all that evokes a world of upheaval. Her work responds to the varied scales of the galleries at The Dock and combine an apparent simplicity with a powerful sense of complexity and joy in the materials of the everyday; in cascading plastics, the visceral liner qualities of paint, in gracefully balanced extruded metals held in the tension of light and space.
