Galway Arts Centre
Award winning artist collective AKIN opens the autumn programme at the Galway Arts Centre.
AKIN are known for their commitment to both making and showing their work here in the West of Ireland and internationally.
FURTHERMORE moves from themes that evoke an understanding of place, from Lyne’s atmospheric paintings depicting an archaeological excavation on Inislyon Island, to Irwin’s copper plate etchings of coastal sacred sites, such as High Island.
Together they delve into both the present and the past. While King’s work reflects abstract
Explorations that are rich in texture, she is an alchemist with colour, and they are effervescent with energy. Murphy’s work is inspired by a visit to the convent of St. Agnes of Bohemia, in Prague where she captures the dramatic space created by the shadows of revered statues, hinting at a secret world that moves when not being watched.
The group are also celebrating twenty seven years as a collective and want to mark the
recent election of Margaret Irwin West to Aosdana.
The Official opening of “Furthermore” by Phyllis McNamara, owner of Cobwebs, Galway.
Opening Friday 6th September, 6pm.
