Ancient Camera by David Lunney

Main Gallery

Lunney’s artistic practice involves the undertaking of protracted art processes. Typically, these processes start with the construction of site-specific or portable sculptural works in The Dublin and Wicklow Mountains. These sculptures are generally created less for their inherent value but rather to provide photographic source material for documentary artworks.

The resulting documentary artworks can take the form of prints, drawings or photographs. These images are rendered, framed and presented in a fashion which intentionally obscures and embellishes the original object and moment that they represent.

In these artworks, it is often the relationship between representational imagery and it’s surrounding abstract visual information which infers the processes and concepts behind the work. The works have a self-contained narrative; the concept and the material process are intrinsically linked in the artworks discussion of it’s provenance.

Textured by Katja Wittmer

Red Couch Gallery

Katja Wittmer’s exhibition Textured focuses on her extensive use of raw materials to create luscious textures in her paintings. Her use of wax, pigments, sand, plaster and paint results in a myriad of layers that invite you to explore varying degrees of perception. “In my paintings, Wittmer explores the complex facets of humankind, the highs and lows, light and shadows, beauty and distortion, love and hate.”

Wittmer is an artist based in Ennis, Co. Clare, whose paintings have been exhibited nationally, as well as in the United States, Austria, China, Germany, India and the Philippines. The central theme in her art deals with emotional liberation, as she is fascinated by the exploration of the “emotional abyss”, discovering what is hidden beneath. She employs dripping paint, bold colours and multi-layered textures to provoke movement, elicit mysticism, and to engage the viewer’s subconscious, challenging the boundaries of perception.

Wittmer’s latest exhibition “Textured” is her second exhibition of 2022 following her successful solo exhibition “If not now, then when!”. Her appeal and reputation continue to grow as one of Ireland’s most exciting and talented abstract artists.
