Oonagh Hurley: Timelines

November 17 to December 23, 2017

As the last show of the year, we’re pleased to present a solo show of new paintings by Cork artist Oonagh Hurley.  This is her first solo show at the gallery.

Hurley explores how life’s memories are reassembled in a fluid and non-linear way.  Using old photographs, media images, or stills from old Super 8mm film for inspiration, she taps into images remembered by us all, inhabited by people who are everyone and, no one.  She adds to them, takes away, changes scale, and amplifies details in similar ways that memories are actually recalled and replayed.  Her colourful paintings exploits the chance elements resulting from pouring and layering paint.   A graduate of CIT Crawford College of Art & Design, Hurley has shown work in several Cork galleries since 2009.

Below is a catalogue of some of the work in the show.  If you click on an image, it will enlarge and you can see information about media, dimensions and prices.
