Michael Mc Swiney, solo exhibition: TRILOGY. Site-specific paintings at St.Peters Arts & Heritage Centre Cork City.

Michael’s paintings are an amalgamation of phenomenal experiences coupled with a distinct working process. His canvases evoke transition and journey which is physically suggested by the way in which he applies coat upon coat of material and paint. Areas are then re-emerged, re-engaged with, re-worked. For Michael, in order for a painting to be fully complete, it must undergo the journey of re-working to fully realise itself. Often a painting is presented that is in the midst of its journey, a marker, or a transition. Colours are strewn about, blotches purvey, an expanse of bold colour sits and hangs in the midst of the canvas. These paintings offer the viewer an invitation to enjoy the sheer and honest colourful and textural properties of the paintings. They beckon us to move and continue but also to stop and to process as they do.
