We present a body of recent work from a group of young artists in the process of defining their creative identity. Throwing Shapes intends to showcase art that is energetically created and to transmit that energy to you, the viewer.

Opening evening 6pm Friday 13th March.

Open 12-6pm on subsequent days.

Conor Donoghue is a filmmaker, photographer and visual artist.
“It’s easy to forget that everyone is living their own separate lives filled with their own unique memories and choices. One seemingly insignificant choice we all make is what picture we decide to use as the lockscreen on our phones. These photos and the stories behind them give us a tiny window into someone’s life. I want to show how beautiful these everyday lives are.”

Flann Manning is a Filmmaker and VFX Artist. Utilizing techniques from compositing, his landscape work conveys surreal and absurd observations within digital and electronic based mediums.

Síobhra Farrell is a figurative artist that uses a variety of media to highlight the regular and irregular shapes found in portraiture.
“In each of these pieces you will find people and moments that have made me who I am today. Life is fleeting and I like to use art to capture the world around me as it happens. From memories happy to sad, friends old to new, to events I wasn’t around for, these moments shaped the progression of my art and me as a person.”

Owen de Forge is a figurative painter. Using a jigsaw as a drawing tool, he builds irregular compositions outside of the traditional rectangle. Playing with the emotional effects of shapes and colours, he conveys the restless movement of our eyes as well as subconscious intrusions to create a more subjective picture.


*’Throwing’ is used here in the figurative sense, as in ‘thrown together’, ‘throwing around ideas’ or ‘throwing a party’. Please do not physically throw any of the artworks.
