Previous Events at Bankley Gallery

One Two

One Two presents the work of Nina Chua with that of Tiago Duarte in an exhibition that addresses the aesthetic relationship between two works.

The work was selected by Mary Griffiths and invites the viewer into the common subtleties inhabiting each artists’ practice, such as the linear space between areas of print and drawing or the line of a journey that functions here as a common denominator for the show.

Preview: Thursday 21st March, 6-9pm

Opening times: 22nd-24th March, 12.30-3.30pm

Please contact both ninachua1@hotmail.com and du_arte@hotmail.com to arrange an alternative viewing time.

re MONTAGE - Julie Del'Hopital

In re MONTAGE the artist asks ‘Is there a transformative energy in destruction? Do things have to break down before something new can occur?'

'One of my art practices from 2008 until 2012 has been mostly executed at home, drawings images from different resources: National Geographic, books, personal photographs... on recycle boards. And as an image maker, they will get destroyed and transformed to create one artwork.’

Art by Natural Definition - Eileen O'Rourke

Private view
Friday 10th August 6.30 onwards

Show runs 11th - 19th August
11.00 - 4.00pm

'This art series is in two parts and explores natural identity using two modes of expression: hair sewing and drawing. The nurture/nature debate is addressed in the first half of this series with the use of hair. The 2nd half of the series uses found natural matter and extends its aesthetic characteristic through an evolutionary drawing principle. Techniques within the works may lead down a blind alley in the way an evolutionary tree 'stumps' when the environmental demand surpasses innate abilities. While escaping into the drawing, various evolutionary avenues will become evident.'
