This is the ninth solo exhibition by Paul MacCormaic and comprises 23 small-scale paintings in the form of traditional icons. Viewers are at first lured by the realist painting housed in the gold frames, but on closer inspection it can be seen that the subject matter is contemporary life. Conceptually, MacCormaic is concerned with ethics and from where do people set their moral compass in the secular post-Catholic Ireland of today. The answer is TV, social media, magazines telling us the right weight to be and how to be good. Within the show is a sub-series called Domestic Goddesses, focusing on women’s work, underpaid and undervalued. Although many women have careers outside the home, they often find themselves with the burden of cleaning and child minding as well. The work is underpinned by a wry sense of self deprecating humour.
