Oonagh Hurley: Timelines to December 23

Hurley, Saturdays Child' 2017 100 x 75cm Acrylic and oil bar on canvas

November 17 to December 23, 2017

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.
