Artists: Paul Maher, Emilie Tseronis, Jacqueline McCoy, Jennifer Wood.
At Four Point Gallery until 1st Feb.
A bitey exhibition at Four Point Gallery is essential viewing for those dedicated to checking out what’s happening in art about town. RockPaperSissors brings together four artists with diverse techniques and merges their work to create a strong presentation.
Aseries of computer generated images by Paul Maher is a highlight introducing an important means of producing art into the arena. The easy drawing technique yields a buffeted and raw effect with colour blocked and basic. The final image is representative of a distorted reality and ends up being pretty darn cool. It’s a style with major edge that is also replicated in his painting practice.
Jacqueline McCoy’s brilliant ability to take the mundane and prosaic transforming it into a stunning piece of art never fails to satisfy. This talented artist applies paint in a funky retro manner implying timelessness. There’s a certain amount of tension working between positive and negative space that burns menacingly
A skull is muse for talented drawer Emilie Tseronis. Her mixed media drawings describe the object with an intense pathos building a remarkable sense of touch. Line and wash work on imagery within the body of the drawing to stimulate imagination and the mind.
Atmospheric seascapes by Jennifer Wood describe a bafflingly real sky stormy yet serene. A calm manner in execution is the backbone of these works that translates easily to the viewer.
This exhibition closes Saturday 1st Feb.
