The Presentation Arts Centre is proud to host a solo exhibition of work by visual artist Nadia Corridan.
Nadia Corridan is a Fine Art Painter with a BA Honours Degree in Fine Art from Limerick School of Art & Design. Born in San Francisco, her family returned home to Cork in the late 90’s, settling just outside Kinsale. Nadia now works from her studio in Ballindaggin, County Wexford.
The work on display in ‘In Time’ portrays sections of stories relayed by friends and family through conversations shared over the years.
Memory and Touch are central themes that run within Corridan’s practice, working with mostly figurative imagery, with a strong focus on hands along with the exploration of colour, form, light and design. “I find myself repeatedly drawn to the intimate nature that hands can reveal as a subject matter, observing human interactions in both public and private moments. An unspoken dialogue.”
The composition of these works has also been carefully considered. Hints of unknown figures with sections purposely concealed and out of context, offer a frozen scene as if taken from a piece of fragmented time. The use of negative space is equally considered. “I wish for the empty canvas to say more than the paint application itself and to push against the traditional idea of a finished painting.”
Through this exhibition, Corridan hopes to probe and evoke faded memoirs and gaps of uncertainty, allowing the viewer to fill in new narratives and reflections of one’s own personal memories.
Nadia is the creator behind ‘Wild Goose Studio’s 2018 Collection’ housed in over seventy stores nationwide, including Kilkenny Gift Shop & Carraig Donn. Selected paintings can be seen in The Civic Theatre Dublin, The Boathouse Gallery Kinsale and fond in private collections worldwide.
This exhibition will run until 5th October 2019.
