Hamilton Gallery, Sligo is very pleased to host a solo exhibition by Belfast based artist Angela Hackett, ARUA, titled ‘Amidst the Flowers, I Tell the Hours’. The exhibition opens from Saturday 7th August and continues until Saturday 28th August.
About the exhibition:
This simple, poetic motto is etched on the face of a Sundial to invite passers by to pause and be mindful of the fleeting nature of time. It has an air of the inquisitive and has a certain poignancy during this time of working in isolation as an artist.
The themes of the passing of time and mortality draw together this exhibition from two series of paintings of Still life and window subjects. They permeate all aspects, objects, tones, colour and composition. Like the action of the sun on the ancient sundial, the paintings capture a moment, marking the time of day, recording the season. It is a comment on the act of painting in a world of accelerating change.
Gallery opening hours: Mon to Sat 10am – 5pm
