An unusual show by two Irish artists, Jade Butler and Laurence O‘Toole. Laurence is a figurative and realist painter working primarily in oil, from Bray, Co. Wicklow. Jade is a contemporary still life painter, also working primarily in oil, originally from Kilkenny, now based in Dublin.
Jade and Laurence are a couple and because they often work in close proximity to one another, their ideas sometimes intersect, where Laurence will paint Jade with some of the elements that she is using in her own compositions.
Most interesting from the fact that although they are two different painters the pieces have relationship to one another. What makes this show exciting is the contrast of one artists interpretation against the others of the same subjects.
