St Lukes Crypt





Sample-Studios is delighted to present ‘Mutators’, a solo exhibition by Kevin Mooney in St. Luke’s Crypt from May 5th – May 28th 2022.

Kevin Mooney is a Cork based artist and member of Sample-Studios. His work considers the voids which mark Irish visual culture, particularly related to Irish diasporic traditions and journeys. His paintings are like haunted tales- sometimes they are inventions, tall stories which present as artefacts from a lost culture and sometimes speculative imaginings of an alternative art history.

For ‘Mutators’, his work will expand from wall-based works to sculptures and hybrid painting/ sculptural objects. The materials of this new work- oil paint, varnish, timber, clay, jute, and iron nails, draw on the remnants of Irish folk art and folklore, blending them with influences from Europe and further afield. His ongoing research interests in historical connections between Ireland and the Caribbean has been a rich source of inspiration. This body of work reimagines artefacts that might have resulted from an integration of peoples with a shared but divergent transatlantic history.

We look forward to seeing you at St. Luke’s Crypt, open Thursday to Saturday, 11am-4pm.
