Alice Maher

One of Ireland's leading contemporary artists, Alice Maher works within the realms of nature and culture, subversion and transformation, mythology and memory. Her work involves many different media including painting, drawing, sculpture, print, photography and installation.
Alice Maher is known for her experimental use of materials in explorations of memory and embodiment. The Meeting of Dante and Beatrice is a hybrid print utilising both digital and lithographic methods. The artist made a digital copy of an original lithograph sourced at auction when the contents of the convent she attended as a young girl were being sold off. This image of Dante encountering Beatrice had hung in the private parlour of the nuns and exhibits a particular pre-Raphaelite sense of longing and sexual tension.
This mysterious image is then enclosed in a lithographed drawing patterned on the morphological forms of biologist Ernst Haeckel, and having the silhouette of the female reproductive system.
The image of this natural organism surrounds the heightened space of memory like a window into the secret lives of a lost era.

Niamh McCann

McCann works by drawing together many different reference points and distilling them into a kind of sculptural poetry. Just Left of Copernicus is a series of solo exhibitions that took place in 2015-16. References in this series, include photos of the 1969 moon landings with the Copernicus crater as a backdrop, advertising images
of Aer Lingus from the 1950’s and 60’s, the work of engineering pioneer Buckminister Fuller and the ideas of German expressionist architect and scenographer Hans Poelzig (1869-1936), best known for the design of Frankfurt’s IG Farben building and the sets for the iconic film Der Golem. Copernicus for Now is large, site-responsive sculpture / structure. It was developed in collaborative discussion with the School of Architecture at the University of Limerick in Ireland (SAUL) and architects Séamus Bairead and Jack Byrne
around the structural and material considerations for this work.
It is a piece that involves the principle of geodesic and grid-like construction, to create a structure that is both a location and an object as an adjunct to, or within, existing sites. The work acts as a locus for both, as it is large enough to house other activities while retaining its extrinsic form. What unites these disparate influences is the idealism they represented in their original incarnations and the ways in which, over time, they have become overlaid with different narratives, stories and meanings. McCann’s interest is in this interweaving of fact and fiction, the overlapping layers of narrative, history and fable that are contained within the cultural and physical structures that we construct.

John Galwin

We approached John to work with us following his involvement in
a technologically ambitious and methodologically innovative audio- visual installation titled ‘Palimpsest’. Johns practice comprised of large scale installations that were multi layered and projected. It was a challenge working within the constraints of the two dimensional page and translating his ideas within the work into a physical form but John succeeded, producing an exceptional suite of three inter
connecting prints that are not only aesthetically beautiful, but a technical feat in his handling of the balance between image, form and texture.
