1 to 30 September 2016
The Hunt Museum, The Custom House, Rutland Street, Limerick
Throughout the month of September, artist Gerry O’Mahony will feature as Curator’s Choice with his work ‘At the Edge of Names’ exhibited in the Hunt museum.
Originally trained as a sculptor, O’Mahony’s output for many years has been in painting. Working in mixed media, his pieces combine watercolour, gold leaf, and acrylic, using a layering process to give an impression of marks floating on and within the surface. He employs a vocabulary of symbols and characters in work which distorts the line between painting and drawing. The work, though not allegorical, flows between the visible and the concealed, the apparent and the obscure.
As part of our Artist Conversation Series in the Hunt Cafe, Gerry O’Mahony will give a talk on Wednesday September 28th at 11am. For more information, visit huntmuseum.com/whats-on/exhibitions/curator%E2%80%99s-choice.aspx
