Title of Exhibition: From a Consuming Light.
Artist being exhibited: Ian-John Coughlan
Summary: Ian-John Coughlan’s art practice stems from a long-term interest in the practice of erasure. With his current work, he has been depicting notions of wonder and future possibility using the traditions of the landscape in recognition of our scientific present. Deconstructing the traditional components and embracing a reductionist approach, he employs simple recognisable motifs to express concepts and their interaction. Although constrained by their graphics, the motifs are adapted beyond their meaning as graphic symbols to be used as the basis for explorations of a number of themes.
Format: All work is wall-mounted. All drawings are framed and ready to hang, while the installational “wall-drawing” is a vinyl adhesive, easily installed and removed.
There is no catalogue or outreach programme attached.
Artists Fees required: In keeping with VAI policy, an artist’s fee is required
