‘Innermost Limits’ a First Graduate Award exhibition of new work by artist Gavin McCrea at the Hyde Bridge Gallery,Sligo to be formally opened by artist & lecturer Ronnie Hughes. The exhibition ‘Innermost Limits’ varies from large to intimate, with energetic gestural marks, paint drips, repeat patterns, screen print and hard-edge graphic elements, incorporating various transparent substrates such as acetate, films, tapes and polythene as an alternative to the more traditional materials. These materials all referencing the construction of surfboards and the translucency of the sea itself. The transparency of the surfaces combined with visible stretchers that populate the gallery add scale and proportion, and gives the work a dynamic and immersive quality.

“I am attempting to offer varying viewing options to the audience; offering the viewer a way to engage with the work from multiple vantage points and angles”

Through his installation of paintings Gavin is placing the viewer within his world and attempting to give an insight into his fascination with the painting process and ultimately the sea.
