Opening: Thursday 15 November, 6-8pm

Taylor Galleries is proud to present The Weight of Light, a solo exhibition of paintings by Pat Harris.

The show is accompanied by an Artist’s Talk and walk-through of the exhibition on Friday 23 November at 1pm. No booking required, all welcome. An eponymus illustrated, limited-edition publication, including a new text by the artist, will be available from the gallery during the run of the exhibition.

The Weight of Light includes oil paintings of the coastal landscape surrounding the artist’s studio in the West of Ireland, a series of small, individual flower pictures and two landscape drawings in charcoal. Writing about this new body of work, Harris describes his process and says his paintings are:

about the particular and the universal. They draw their inspiration from the coastline of Carrowteige and Kilgalligan in North Mayo, from its rocks, stacks and headland. But also from small flowers that I brought into my studio. They are built up in layers, over time, in some cases weeks, in others months, in a few cases a year or more.

They are an attempt not just to paint a rock, a stack or flower but also the space and time they occupy, the light that makes them visible.
